Digital transformation is changing the way graduates are recruited for jobs

By Brendan O’Malley – Managing Editor. In Commentary, Amber Wigmore Álvarez says gamification is revolutionising the way candidates are recruited for jobs and universities need to equip their students accordingly in order to achieve good future employment outcomes. John A Akec examines the bleak outlook for higher education in South Sudan, where persistent underfunding and soaring inflation could force many universities to close down, impacting heavily on the country’s future.
