Career Readiness Program

Ways to Get Involved

Students in the Career Readiness Program (CRP) have taken their professional development to the next level and are ready to make their mark on your organization!

The Chambers College Center for Career Development launched the CRP during the 2017-2018 academic year to accelerate the professional goals of academically high-performing sophomores and juniors. 

Two-Tiered Program

Students in the Platinum Level must maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.25, score an 80% or higher on their mock interview, and attend a significant number of career fairs and professional development events throughout the year. Students in the Gold Level must maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.8 and are required to attend a smaller number of events. 

Platinum Level status will not be confirmed until the end of the Fall 2019 semester based on completion of requirements. Most student perks will be offered to all CRP students unless a limited number of spots are available, at which time we will initially offer participation in those activities to CRP students with a 3.25 or higher Cumulative GPA.  

CRP Resume Books

This fall, employers will have access to a CRP resume book.

Networking Events

CRP students will receive exclusive invitations to attend events with employers, such as the Networking Reception immediately following the Chambers College Career Fair on September 11.

Employers are encouraged to host their own events for CRP students such as traditional networking receptions; however, the CCD welcomes new and creative ideas such as escape rooms, ropes courses, or trainings/workshops on various technologies, software, and soft skills.

Employer Site Visits/Job Shadows

Beginning this fall, employers will be able to host CRP-Exclusive site visits to increase organizational awareness among the Chambers College's top students. Through employer site visits and/or job shadows, students gain exposure to a particular occupation or industry, establish professional contacts, and develop real-world insight into the day to day lives of working professionals.
