Event Description

Are Your Graduates Career Ready?

Career readiness has become an increasingly vital issue in higher education, the labor market, and the public arena. Workplace success for today’s students requires much more than a college degree. Now, more than ever before, students need a competitive edge to achieve their professional goals—in graduate school and beyond.

And it’s up to your institution to provide this competitive edge. Learn how in this information-packed audio presentation by higher education expert Dr. Paz Maya Olivérez. Discover how your school can offer holistic and engaging co-curricular experiences—educational opportunities outside the classroom that complement and augment what students learn inside the classroom—to ensure that students get the well-rounded preparation they need for any future career path.

After attending this audio event, you will understand the eight competencies that employers believe are necessary for college graduates to be successfully prepared for the work world, according to the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE). Uncover the strategies for supporting the development of these NACE competencies in college students through co-curricular efforts. And learn how to ensure that students have the requisite knowledge, experience, abilities, and skills to make a good impression—not just during a job or graduate school interview, but also as they move into the wider academic or professional world.

  • Provide a holistic, intentional approach to supporting student engagement to ensure that students are well-prepared for post-graduate success.

  • Gain an understanding of the “soft skills” that employers and graduate schools look for in potential candidates and how to develop these skills in your students.
