As a national leader in rethinking the college to career experience, Wake Forest has been at the forefront of transforming the traditional, outdated concept of “career services” into a holistic, four-year approach to personal and career development. Ever since Wake Forest convened Rethinking Success, a 2012 conference that highlighted the value of a liberal arts education for 21st Century careers, the University – as well as its career and mentoring experts – have been featured in The New York Times Magazine, Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, Today, Money, Business Insider, Fast Company, Forbes, CNN and USA Today as well as higher education publications such as The Chronicle of Higher Education and Inside Higher Ed.

“The Diane Rehm Show” is a National Public Radio call-in-show based in the United States. In October 2007, “The Diane Rehm Show” was named to the Audience Research Analysis list of the top ten most powerful national programs in public radio, the only talk show on the list. The show, produced by WAMU, and hosted by Diane Rehm, is estimated to have more than 2 million listeners.

“Navigating the Transition from School to the Workplace” is archive online on “The Diane Rehm Show” website.
