“Employers and graduate programs seek recent graduates who are career ready and demonstrate critical competencies. Career readiness is the attainment and demonstration of requisite competencies that broadly prepare college graduates for a successful transition into the workplace (National Association of Colleges and Employers, 2016). Many competencies have been integrated into the course and grading rubrics. The key competencies for career readiness include:

  • Career & Self-Development
  • Communication
  • Critical Thinking
  • Equity & Inclusion
  • Leadership
  • Professionalism
  • Teamwork
  • Technology

Students will be assessed on career readiness competencies in the classroom and in the grading process. Beyond this course, students are encouraged to utilize the Office of Career Services to assist with their career planning.”
