Career Readiness Workshop Series

Learn how to differentiate yourself from the competition

Career Readiness Workshop Series 

The goal of the Career Readiness Workshop Series is to help students develop or enhance their professional image and profile as they prepare for the future workforce.  Therefore, we’re dedicated to empowering students with both technology and leadership skills to successfully sustain future career pathways.  David Deming, a Harvard University economist summarized that “We are not witnessing an end to the importance of cognitive skills—rather, strong cognitive skills are increasingly a necessary condition for obtaining a good, high-paying job [but] you also need social skills.”  Therefore this series is an opportunity to respond to the need to truly PREPARE our students for a future workforce.

By the end of the series we hope to:  

  • Create “work-ready” students by strengthening their communication/presentation skills, interviewing/resume writing prowess, financial literacy, personal branding/social media footprint, networking capacity in a diverse environment and their entrepreneurial visioning
  • Share career pathways that enhance a student’s “career literacy”
  • Empower students with “Pathways to Leadership” via workforce development initiatives, career assessments & mapping and/or curriculum alignment.
