The 3rd Annual Career Competencies Symposium (3.0), building on two previous sold out events in 2017 and 2018, will engage attendees in approaches to implementing substantive, institutional-wide strategies for both beginners as well as those with competency initiatives already in place. This year, Symposium content and program design is based on four essential components:
For beginners, thorough introduction to the NACE Career Readiness Competencies, foundational competency implementation strategies, and a focus on campus specific considerations will provide attendees the opportunity to develop strategic action plans for their campus. For the intermediate/advanced, crowd-sourcing for new ideas, learning from the best practices of others, and strategies designed to enhance institutional effectiveness will provide opportunities to advance existing and on-going competency initiatives.
Sessions will facilitate meaningful sharing and collaboration among all attendees, accompanied by tailored discussions and activities to maximize sharing, learning, and strategic takeaways. Institutions sending teams (career services, administrators, faculty, advisors, etc.), which is highly encouraged, will participate in team collaboration sessions to develop/refine their campus implementation strategy. Institutions sending an individual will meet up with other individual attendees to collaborate on strategy development and approaches to implementation. *See information on registration page for discounted rates for groups.
