Featured Resource: Career Readiness Competencies

Career readiness is a foundation from which students demonstrate core competencies that broadly prepare them for success in the workplace and lifelong career management. It is a framework for addressing career-related goals and outcomes of curricular and extracurricular activities, regardless of a student’s field of study. These are skill sets universally sought by employers from all industries. The National Association of Colleges and Employers recently announced a key update to the 8 career competencies including revised names and examples of students actions and behaviors for each competency.   The newly revised competencies are listed below but click the link to read the definitions and full descriptions!


  1. Career & Self-Development
  2. Communication
  3. Critical Thinking
  4. Equity & Inclusion
  5. Leadership
  6. Professionalism
