‘Dateline: RIT – The Podcast’ highlights Dateline: RIT, News hits, Podcasts

‘Comings and goings’ on “Dateline: RIT – The Podcast” this week, as RIT experts discuss jobs going overseas . . . and students coming home (and returning to college).

RIT public policy professor and job outsourcing expert Ron Hira, author of Outsourcing America, was quoted in two BusinessWeek articles and in The Manufacturer—all on the same day—about issues related to offshore outsourcing. What’s the U.S. government’s role—if any—in all of this? Read Dr. Hira’s remarks in “Work Visas May Work Against the U.S.” and “Outsourcing: Where’s Uncle Sam?,” both in BusinessWeek, and hear what he has to say about it on the pod.

And, does having a college degree really lead to a better job? RIT’s Manny Contomanolis, associate vice president and director of the Office of Cooperative Education and Career Services, gives his take in an article, “Training Beyond the Trenches,” by ClassesUSA.com. Hear him on the pod.

Plus, Kelly Downs, Bob Finnerty and Vienna Carvalho share more RIT news and News & Events highlights. Hear it all only on the pod.

Have a great weekend!
