Career Readiness Competencies

What is career readiness? The National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) has recently defined "career readiness as: "...the attainment and demonstration of requisite competencies that broadly prepare college graduates for a successful transition into the workplace." We believe that a liberal arts education fulfills these competencies better than any other approach to higher education. A liberal arts education provides critical thinking, communication skills and a broad base of knowledge that emphasizes the interconnectedness of life.

What does this mean for the workforce?

NACE provides 'career-readiness' competencies to guide your personal and professional development.
