Are you Career Ready?
There are eight essential competencies that students need to develop and demonstrate to be Career Ready for successful transition into the workforce. Based on extensive research from the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), every graduate should attain these eight competencies: Critical Thinking, Oral and Written Communications, Teamwork/Collaboration, Digital Technology, Leadership, Professionalism/Work Ethic, Career Management, and Global/Intercultural Fluency along with their field of study. Learn about each competency below.
At Mat-Su College our goal is to help our students attain these competencies in the classroom, through an internship experience, and through workshops offered through Student Services Career Development office, or one-on-one coaching with the Career Development Advisor. Students and alumni are encouraged to utilize the free services offered to you throughout the year to help you successfully transition into your career.
