The Career Center at California State University, San Bernardino empowers students and alumni to develop a lifelong skill set for an ever-changing labor market through exploration, programming, and experiential learning opportunities to meet their personal and professional goals. To help meet this mission, the Career Center has adopted the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) Career Readiness Competencies. NACE defines career readiness as the attainment and demonstration of requisite competencies that broadly prepare college graduates for a successful transition into the workplace. The NACE Career Readiness Competencies serve as a foundation for the Career Center’s services and programs to ensure students are ready for the professional world of work upon graduation. Refer to the legend below to learn more about these competencies.
