Leveraging Career-Readiness Language in your Research & Creative Inquiry Experiences

When:  Jun 24, 2024 from 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM (ET)

ConnectUR 2024 Preconference Workshop

Participants will learn to reframe how to present their undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative inquiry (URSCI) experiences in terms of transferable career readiness skills identified by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) as in demand by employers. The aim of these student-centered career readiness adjustments is to close the articulation gap between what students learn from their URSCI experiences and what recruiters, employers, legislators, and families seek from higher education. Participants will: (1) become familiar with the NACE career readiness competencies, (2) learn how to apply the NACE comptencies to undergraduate research experiences (UREs), (3) see examples of how to apply the NACE competencies to UREs, and (4) begin an action plan for infusing NACE career readiness in your UREs.
