Do You Need Help With STUDENT CAREER ADVISING???

Do you have student advisees for whom you need assistance in career advising?  Maybe you're working with a student interested in a field outside of your academic discipline or area of specialty and don't know what to tell them.  Or they are seeking an internship or other experience outside of the major, and you're not sure what's available.    Feel free to reach out to Career Services for assistance.  Call (540) 375-2303 or email careers@roanoke.edu, and one of our professional staff will follow up with you. 


CAREER READINESS 

for the New College Graduate

A Definition and Competencies

ARE YOU CAREER OR WORKPLACE READY??

(Click here for printable handout with definition of each competency area.)

Career readiness is the attainment and demonstration of requisite competencies that broadly prepare college graduates for a successful transition into the workplace.  Competencies include:

  • Critical Thinking/Problem Solving
  • Oral/Written Communications
  • Teamwork/Collaboration
  • Information Technology Application
  • Professionalism/Work Ethic
  • Leadership
  • Career Management
  • Global/Intercultural Fluency

The Career Development process is one that ideally should start with students in their early College years.  We invite collaboration and partnerships with faculty and staff in working with our students to help them achieve their goals and plans for "life after Roanoke."   References given in these pages (see Index to left) should assist you in this regard, but you may also find helpful information on our Student pages. Please let us know if we can partner with you or provide information not contained herein.
