Dr. O'Connor mentioned the importance of transition year.

Transition year sounds like an ideal opportunity for young people to identify the kind of career they might be interested in. At one level, however, transition year seems to be chaotic and at other levels, it is not properly structured. What would Dr. O'Connor like to see in a transition year that would be beneficial to expose younger people to the types of careers they might be interested in?
