The Skills Builder Tool starts a dialogue between you and your students. “Why do we have to do this assignment?” “How will this assignment help me get a good job?” The graphs you create can help make clear the connection between everything you do in class to the in-demand professional competencies they’ll be asked to discuss in job interviews, cover letters, and personal story narratives.
Students should be AWARE of the competencies most valued by employers, be comfortable and confident in articulating the CONNECTION between the work that they do as an undergraduate with the work they plan to do after they graduate, and be able to DEMONSTRATE the career-readiness competencies they are learning.
You can adopt one or more of these assignments when in a specific course in your iCollege account. Open a module in the course, choose upload/create, add object from LOR, then click on Repository, and then on College to Career. There is at least one assignment for each of the eight competencies. These assignments were developed by faculty and piloted with Georgia State Students during the 2019 Fall semester.
