Career Readiness

Career Readiness

The National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) has defined Career Readiness as “the attainment and demonstration of requisite competencies that broadly prepare college graduates to a successful transition into the workplace”. NACE has currently identified 8 Core Competencies students should have upon graduation:

  • Critical Thinking/Problem Solving
  • Oral/Written Communications
  • Teamwork/Collaboration
  • Digital Technology
  • Leadership
  • Professionalism/Work Ethic
  • Career Management
  • Global/Intercultural Fluency
The Center for Internships and Career Development’s Career Prep Program will help Eastern students understand the value of their Liberal Arts Education and encourage them to be engaged members of the campus and local communities. Participants learn to translate their undergraduate experiences into marketable skills for future employers. Students complete a total of 10 self-paced elements, including a resume & cover letter, mock interview, and career exploration and experiential learning activities. Equipping Eastern students with the tools they need to become employable is a key objective of our office and the Career Prep Program.

Students interested in registering for the program may do so here.

More information will be posting soon.
