The Career Readiness Project
Assess, Measure, & Verify Student Competencies
60+ Pilot Institutions
Measure and verify student competencies using a proven, scientifically validated HR solution
Thousands of Students
Evaluated by those who have observed their work including supervisors, mentors, and coworkers
8 Career Readiness Competencies
Evaluations based on the 8 competencies identified by NACE in conjunction with member institutions
Competency Mastery Must Be
Assessed, Measured, and Tracked
Consistency of Process Allows for Comparative Reporting
Students invite supervisors, mentors, and coworkers to evaluate their recent experience; Evaluators complete their ratings in 8 minutes or less; Institutions measure and assess student ratings for each NACE competency; Feedback is shared with the student.
Institutions use a proven and scientifically validated HR solution used by thousands of organizations and 30+ million job candidates and references for evaluating and comparing candidate competencies resulting in two billion data points.
Centers and students receive a detailed, visual report outlining how evaluators rated each student’s competencies; Provides a succinct snapshot of recent performance and competency mastery unlike typical evaluations.
We’ve researched hundreds of evaluations in online & offline formats. This project provides institutions with a proven, scientifically validated, cloud-based solution to consistently measure and track competencies.
Normative & Comparative Data
Using a consistent set of competencies allows institutions to compare and evaluate student competency ratings by major, nationally, and against previously rated entry-level candidates, and provides data to monitor improvement.
“Clemson is excited for the potential of this platform to help students get a 360 degree view of where they are in their competency development and allow institutions to strategically identify where to help students further develop to be ready for life after college.”
“The Career Readiness Project is a solution focused pilot that addresses the skills/competencies gap which employers indicated is pervasive among entry-level candidates. The pilot project is designed to verify student and candidate competency proficiency at scale.”
“Babson has had major success in developing career ready graduates. Our partnership with the Career Readiness Project will amplify and focus our efforts on the skills and competencies that are key differentiators for college students entering the workforce.”
