    • Summary

      Do you struggle finding resources for graduate-level students? How can data influence changes to programming in your career services office?

      Learn how one career services office—after realizing the limited, appropriate career readiness assessments available for graduate-level students—created a customized, well-researched, and data-driven assessment to measure students’ employability.

      Explore how the assessment was created and implemented and led to the modification of student programming. Additionally, look at methods to gather data and how your office can use these concepts to adapt current programming.

      Following this program, you will be able to:

      • Diagram the steps needed to create your own customized career readiness assessment;
      • Plan how assessments can be incorporated into your advising services; and
      • Discover how student data collection can influence career readiness programming.
