Career Readiness

Employment Readiness Toolkit

Learn more about the NACE competencies and how to develop and articulate these important skills. The Employment Readiness Toolkit is a self- paced online course with interactive modules.

Throughout this course, there will be a handful of assignments and activities for you to complete for each module. Additionally, you will be building and strengthening your resume, and will turn in three different versions: one at the beginning of the course before learning any core competencies, one at the halfway point, and one after you've completed all eight competencies. This will allow you to see your growth as you become a career ready master!

You will need to create an account when you click on the Enroll into Career Ready Guide button below. Please make sure you use a different password than you use at Weber. Once you have enrolled, bookmark the website for easy access.
