The purpose of the CTC Orientation Course is to get students thinking about and preparing for their career readiness during their first year at Georgia State. We want to get students thinking about the connection between their academic college experience and their career goals. This course is non-credit bearing. The course is automatically populated into the iCollege accounts for all incoming students and for other student cohorts, as determined by the Office of Student Success. Students receive a completion certificate at the end of the module, so if you would like to require students to complete it for class credit, you can!

The skills you teach in class as well as those associated with the co-curricular events around campus enable students to gain a proficiency in the competencies most valued by employers. When a prospective employer asks one of our students what makes her a good leader, she will be able to point to the skills she practiced and the assignments that demonstrate those skills. 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 can use their Portfolium accounts to post and curate artifacts demonstrating their proficiencies in the career-readiness competencies they develop in their coursework. The videos and tutorials included here will help you get a sense of how you can use Portfolium as a teaching tool. If you want additional training, or if you would like to join a Portfolium-focused Faculty Teaching and Learning Community, please visit the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning’ website for information on workshops, communities, and online training modules. Are you interested in having a student Portfolium Ambassador visit your class to talk about and demonstrate what the platform can do? Contact University Career Services to set up an in-class visit.
The National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), through a task force comprised of representatives from both the higher education and corporate sides, has identified eight competencies associated with career readiness for the new college graduate.
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.
Would you like to brand an assignment, event, activity, information on your website, program materials, etc., as "College to Career?" Use this visual asset to highlight CTC programming with your College to Career initiative.
