The need for college students to prepare for postgraduate careers is essential in today’s competitive world. Completing a college degree is certainly a commendable accomplishment, but there is also a real need to empower students for their transition into the workplace.
Students should begin thinking in terms of career planning as early as high school and should blend their short-term college plans with the longer-term goals after graduation. The importance of actual career experience is invaluable in helping students determine their skills, assets and interests before joining the work force. The importance of both in-class involvement and out-of-class volunteering and jobs are major factors in finding the right career.
Career Readiness for Success, led by founder Jane Moughon, helps students recognize and achieve the balance they need to become ready for their successful entry into the workplace.
