    • Summary

      Learn how to deploy a program that can shift the paradigm. Students often wait to engage in career readiness content toward the latter half of their academic career. In this model, we flip the paradigm and begin the career readiness process at the point of admissions through their first year. At Florida Atlantic University, students are introduced to career readiness when they choose FAU, and career content is infused into the onboarding process to ensure students are getting introduced to career resources early on. This information and webinar has been widely used for Eduology, Complete College America, and Academic Impressions. Audiences have included participants from every state as well as higher education professionals in the UAE.

      Following this program, you will be able to:

      • Create a strategic vision to create a culture shift for incoming students to increase their ability to create parallel plans focused on career readiness;
      • Equip career services professionals with information about how and who to have conversations with across divisions to bring a similar model to their institution; and
      • Design a plan on how to do this at other universities with limited resources by using this model as a blueprint for success.
