Going Back to School - Sort Of

While services vary, and often come up lacking, college career offices are trying to respond to alumni demands for career help, even years after they've left campus. Writes Joann Lublin in The Wall Street Journal:
U.S. universities have begun to respond by creating job-search programs. Nearly 20% now offer full-fledged efforts for alumni, up from just 5% five years ago, according to alumni-service specialists interviewed. And business schools in particular are stepping up aid for their graduates. Matthew Temple, Kellogg's director of alumni career services, says he and fellow coaches handled 2,160 appointments with M.B.A. graduates during the eight months ended on April 30 -- 45% more than the year-earlier period.
