Emerson College supports your future through a combination of hands-on coursework, experiential learning, and on-campus involvement. Future Ready is your chance to discover the many departments and offices around campus which contribute to and impact your future, including your career path after graduation.

Here’s what we’re doing right now in Spring 2022

What is “Future Ready”?

Future Ready was started by the Career Development Center. Its purpose is to showcase and celebrate the ways in which Emerson’s departments and support offices contribute to your professional development.

The event is based on the National Association of Colleges and Employers’ (NACE) Career Competencies. Many of the competencies could be described as soft skills — skills that are helpful in general but may not be connected to a particular action or proficiency with a system.

The Career Competencies were developed through hands-on research with employers and describe the ideal skillset for college graduates entering the workforce. You can learn more about NACE and their competencies here or continue reading for a list of what they include…

Why is “Future Ready” a thing?

Our hope is to provide you with a stronger understanding of how you’re already developing these skills through coursework and on-campus experience. Likewise, we hope to show you how other campus partners might further develop your competencies, and by extension, your future.
