For Students

CareerBound is here to help you prepare and to succeed in your academic journey and career. By acquiring new skills and competencies, you can develop your personal brand and demonstrate your accomplishments to potential employers.

Career readiness competencies are embedded within and achieved through curriculum and co-curricular activities. Peer and alumni mentorships are also available to further provide competency development opportunities.

CareerBound competency engagement and assessment is integrated within digital platforms and tools such as Brightspace, CareerBound App (Suitable), SkillSurvey, BoilerConnect and Spotlight. A digital badging element related to competency achievements will reflect your accomplishments and enable you to present your competencies to potential employers.
