ABOUT CAREER SERVICES


Welcome to the Office of Career Services

CAREER SERVICES OFFERS ASSISTANCE WITH CAREER DEVELOPMENT AND EMPLOYER RELATIONS.

Tusculum University Office of Career Services provides assistance to students with developing pathways for career development and preparation to transition from the classroom to graduate school or the world of work.

Since career development occurs over a lifetime, students are encouraged to explore the resources posted on this website and take an active role in career preparation, during each year of study, in order to become “career ready.”


Universities and recruiting employers throughout the country have developed eight career readiness competencies through the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE).


NACE DEFINITION OF CAREER READINESS

Career readiness is the attainment and demonstration of requisite competencies that broadly prepare college graduates for a successful transition into the workplace.

To learn more about the NACE career readiness competencies go to the website at www.naceweb.org.
