Are you career ready? What does that mean? Learn more here about the skills and competencies that employers seek and expect from qualified candidates, and also ways to build those skills through resources provided by Pitt.
At the University of Pittsburgh, we know learning happens beyond the classroom. We also know employers want more than just soft skills; they want individuals with the mindsets that lead to growth in their career. This is where skill development comes in – and we’re here to help! In 2015, the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) launched an initiative to introduce 8 career competencies every college student should have upon entering the workforce.
Wondering where to start developing your skills? Pitt’s Outside the Classroom Curriculum (OCC) is a great way to add structure to your college experience by identifying programs, events, and activities that align with career competencies. By downloading the Suitable mobile app, you can see upcoming activities in Career Preparation, Leadership Development, Global and Cultural Engagement, Communication Skills, and more! Don’t forget to also check out the Career Ready Guide in the resources below – an interactive study guide that dives deeper into the NACE competencies.
