Les CVthèques encore très utilisées par les candidats

http://www.amge-jobs.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/06/logoFocusRH.jpgPar Brice Ancelin. Voilà le premier constat que l’on peut tirer de la dernière étude publiée par Opensourcing en mars dernier sur l’utilisation des CVthèques par les candidats. Pourquoi cette présence? Quelle stratégie les candidats mettent en œuvre via ces CVthèques? Comment s’en servent-ils? Eléments de réponse.
Halte aux idées reçues! Les candidats se trouvent encore sur les CVthèques. A l’heure des réseaux sociaux, blogs emploi et autres CV vidéo, et dans la course (parfois ratée) au CV original, il est peut-être utile de le rappeler. Et non seulement ils sont présents sur les CVthèques, mais la majorité met son CV à jour: pour 54% d’entre eux, dès qu’il y a un changement dans leur situation. La grande majorité (67%) est également prête à consacrer plus de 5 minutes à la création d’un CV en ligne. Leur première motivation? Augmenter leurs chances d’être contacté par un recruteur (93%). Les uns ciblent leur CVthèque en fonction du poste recherché (42%), les autres non (37%). Quand 16% utilisent toujours les mêmes CVthèques. Le nombre moyen de CVthèques sur lesquelles chaque candidat est présent est de 3,5. Dans le même temps, près de 15% des candidats sont présents sur 6 CVthèques simultanément: Cadremploi, Keljob, Apec, Monster, Pôle Emploi et RégionsJobs. L’étude complète est disponible sur le site d’opensourcing. Suite de l'article...

Thatcher had ‘immense impact’ on higher education

Times Higher EducationBy . Margaret Thatcher’s “revolutionary” reforms helped to transform an ailing university system into a world-leading higher education system, a vice-chancellor has said. Terence Kealey, vice-chancellor of the University of Buckingham, which was awarded its Royal charter in 1983 with the then-prime minister’s support, praised Baroness Thatcher’s policies in the 1980s for transforming UK higher education. Meanwhile, the universities and science minister David Willetts also paid tribute to her “extraordinary achievements” in setting the scene “for the world-class higher education sector we have today”.
Professor Kealey, a former adviser to Baroness Thatcher, who has died at the age of 87 following a stroke, said her reforms led to more transparency and accountability within the sector, while her push to liberalise rules on fees also had an immense impact.
“Before Mrs Thatcher, universities were very similar to public utilities – run for the benefit of staff with government money. Now they are stellar,” said Professor Kealey.
“She was determined to introduce a much higher level of accountability for public funding and greater accountability for students as customers,” he said.
The introduction of full tuition fees for international students in 1981 was a good example of Baroness Thatcher’s benign legacy to higher education, he said. Read more...

Growth Rate Slowing for International Applications for Grad School

DiverseBy Jamaal Abdul-Alim. U.S. graduate schools are getting more applications from students in India and Brazil, but fewer from students in China. Those shifts are among the various changes in the portions of applications being sent to U.S. graduate schools from students around the world, according to a new report being released today from the Council of Graduate Schools.
The report also shows that applications from prospective international students only increased 1 percent in 2013, the smallest increase in the past eight years and significantly lower than the 9- and 11-percent increases that took place in 2012 and 2011, respectively.
The biggest factor in the overall decline in the number of grad school applications from abroad was driven mostly by a decline in applications from China, according to the report, which is Phase I of the 2013 CGS International Graduate Admissions Survey. Phases II and III will deal with admissions and enrollment, respectively. Read more...

Higher-ed funding idea: Charge international students more

The Seattle TimesBy Katherine Long. Senate leaders are proposing a 20 percent surcharge on international college students to subsidize higher education, but universities say the fee could drive students away. Each fall, thousands of students from overseas apply to study at the University of Washington and other state schools. So why not charge them extra, then use that money to help solve higher education’s funding woes? That’s the thinking behind a new Senate bill that could raise as much as $60 million over two years by levying a 20 percent surcharge on international students.
It’s one of a handful of strategies some Senate leaders are proposing to try to increase higher-education funding. But universities say the fee is so high that it will drive international students away from state schools, leading to a loss of revenue — not an increase. Read more...

Gap Widens for Faculty at Colleges, Report Finds

New York TimesBy Tamar Lewin.  For the academic elite — tenured professors at private research universities — average pay this year is $167,118, while at public research universities such professors earn $123,393, according to the annual report by the American Association of University Professors. After three years in which overall increases in full-time faculty pay lagged behind the rate of inflation, this year’s average increase, 1.7 percent, kept pace with consumer prices.
But the difficult economic climate of recent years is taking a serious toll on higher education, especially public institutions. As states cut back their support for public institutions, the gap between the pay scales at private and public universities is continuing to grow, the report found. Average pay for assistant professors at private colleges that award only bachelor’s degrees is $62,763, while public colleges paid $58,591. Read more...

An Old Ally Sends Droves of Students to U.S.

http://graphics8.nytimes.com/images/misc/nytlogo152x23.gifBy D. D. Guttenplan. ISTANBUL — Which European country sends more students to U.S. universities than any other? Is it Britain, which shares a common language and a reverence for ancient collegiate campuses? Or Germany, whose great research universities did so much to shape U.S. higher education? The answer, it turns out, is neither. Though Britain sent more than 9,000 students to the United States last year — more than ever before — and Germany sent about 9,300, both lagged behind Turkey, which has been sending more than 10,000 students a year to the United States since 2000.

Challenges of being an education hub

c0b682717a08674628f1cdf3bb514429.jpgBy Katherine Forestier. Hong Kong has what it takes to be an education hub, recently released international research has shown. The city has some of the best conditions to attract both foreign institutions and students to make a hub a reality. These include regulations to ensure the quality of courses and favourable financial incentives and visa conditions.
Many countries want to be hubs, but at the British Council's Going Global 2013 conference, held in Dubai last month, it was Hong Kong that came out as one of the star performers, according to two new studies conducted by the British Council and Dr Jane Knight, the "hub specialist" from the University of Toronto.
A hub, according to Knight's definition, involves attracting a large number of students, providers and research centres for cross-border education, training and research. Among the reasons for a government to do this are to internationalise and modernise its educational system, build a skilled workforce, attract foreign investment, and increase its competitiveness.

Universities tested by foreign student influx

swissinfo.ch - Swiss Broadcasting CorporationBy Matthew Allen. The rising influx of foreign students to Swiss universities is bringing more international talent to the country. But the debate on who foots the bill for welcoming such bright young minds is tying academics and legislators in knots.
Switzerland prides itself on having some of the lowest tuition fees in the world, subsidised by the federal and cantonal authorities. This gives students access to higher education regardless of income, but taxpayers are also shelling out for foreigners.
Top universities are now bulging at the seams with new students and frequently cry out for more cash to help them cope. At the same time, the proportion of overseas students is constantly rising - from 23 per cent in 1990 to 38 per cent in 2011.
Swiss universities jostle with international competitors to reel in the brightest overseas talent to boost domestic prowess in science, technology and other fields of research. In addition, business leaders welcome highly educated foreigners to help plug workforce gaps. Read more...
