Teaching Career Readiness Skills to College Students: One Professor's Journey Using FranklinCovey Content in the Classroom
April Grudi, Indiana University
How can faculty effectively teach career readiness skills in class?
It's no secret that career readiness skills are crucial for building strong relationships, developing abilities for becoming a high-performing, productive employee, and, ultimately, for working with teams, and leading others. Yet, global studies and surveys consistently reveal that university graduates do not have these requisite skills when entering the workforce—and this lack of in-demand workforce skills is growing.
While most institutions offer a first-year student success course or co-curricular programs that may teach these skills, the instruction is often inadequate to help students confidently learn and apply them later in the workplace. And at the classroom level, most professors do not have the time or the resources to build a robust curriculum on their own to teach these skills.
