What is Career Readiness?
The National Association of Colleges and Employers defines career readiness as the attainment and demonstration of requisite competencies that broadly prepare college graduates for a successful transition into the workplace.
Career Services prepares students by promoting skills employers need in the workplace, such as:
- problem solving
- critical thinking
- digital technology
- work ethic
- career management
- global/intercultural fluency
NSU Career Services presents students with approximately six career fairs each year, including our Major Showcase, Part-Time Job Fair, Career Fair and Teacher Job Fair. Additional events include etiquette dinners, skillshops led by Career Services staff and/or employer partners, and a variety of other career readiness opportunities.
