Career Readiness Summit

Ever find yourself wondering about the value of your Liberal Arts degree?

With the goal of making a positive impact on the world around us, a Liberal Arts education serves as the building block for the skills needed to jump into real-world settings to solve real-world problems.

The National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) have identified eight career-readiness keys to success, all of which can be achieved both inside and outside of the classroom.

Exclusively offered for those affiliated with the College of the Liberal Arts, this summit serves the purpose to discuss those eight career-readiness skills, gaining employer, alumni, faculty, and student perspectives along the way. You will be a part of the conversation, rather than a passive participant, shaping the language you will use to advocate for yourself, as well as the value of a Liberal Arts education.
