TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - Oct 20, 2015) - Kira Talent, the company behind Kira Academic, a talent assessment and video-interviewing platform designed for university and college admissions, today announces that it will host a live webinar: Six Essential Ingredients for Developing Successful Graduates. David Singh, the VP of Strategy for Kira Talent, and Brandon Busteed, the Executive Director of Education and Workforce Development at Gallup, will offer a snapshot of the current state of higher education in America and how schools can set their students up for success after graduation.

"By sharing the 'six essential experiences' that Gallup determined successful graduates had during their time in university, we hope that schools can make changes to ensure they offer all their students a similar experience," said David Singh, VP of Strategy of Kira Talent. "The Kira team and I believe this success starts with admissions. We want to help schools choose students with the best potential so they are set up for success before they even enter a program."

In the live Q&A style webinar, Singh and Busteed will discuss the current state of higher education in America, including:

  • Extensive analysis and research gathered by Gallup
  • Why there is a broken link between graduate school and the workplace
  • Six big experiences that every student needs to have in school to set them up for success in the workplace
