Career Readiness Training

IMG_7353Students who participate in the Accelerate program while going to college participate in career readiness classes and workshops that are held through the academic year on campus by their Accelerate Career Technical Advisor.  They earn stipends to offset their time and transportation costs to attend.

In addition, Accelerate hosts three “all-school” events each academic year.  These networking events give students a chance to meet each other and regional employers and are the perfect venue to put into practice the communication, leadership, and career readiness skills they have worked on in their campus workshops .  Employers provide mock interviews, critique elevator pitches, and provide input and feedback on what it takes to get the job and grow a career.
