Roanoke College Career Services partners with RealWorld to get recent graduates "Real World Ready"

Roanoke College is thrilled to bring “real world” education to our recent graduates in partnership with Real World Ready, a platform that helps students and recent graduates transition into life after school. From paying off student loans to saving for retirement, RealWorld’s online program, “Real World Ready”, provides students with critical knowledge and skills to thrive in life post-grad. Roanoke College is committed to supporting students and recent graduates during this important life transition, and is excited to join top schools across the nation in launching/offering this program on campus this year!

As the GPS for adulthood, RealWorld is leveling the playing field and democratizing knowledge by breaking down difficult to understand concepts into terms that are digestible and relevant to students. Through its engaging cartoon-based modules, Real World Ready provides a comprehensive introduction to some of the more complicated “real world” decisions and experiences, and covers everything from personal finance and health care to signing a lease and filing income taxes.

In addition to this comprehensive online educational platform, Roanoke College students and recent graduates can explore tools and trusted resources available on RealWorld’s sidekick website, https://real-world-ready.teachable.com/p/real-world-ready-bundle/?product_id=1300119&coupon_code=ROANOKE20. Here, you will find everything from sample emails and vocabulary, to decoded forms and helpful services.  With this partnership, Roanoke College is excited to join leading schools across the nation in bringing the Real World Ready Movement to our campus. We continue to find new and innovative ways to support our students and graduates, and are thrilled to launch this much needed resource to prepare our students and graduates for success post-graduation.
