Each year, the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) surveys employers to determine the professional skills they most value. To help students translate their work into skills employers seek, the University of South Florida’s (USF) Career Services created an innovative badging program.
Join Kathy McDonald, FCAN’s assistant director of network partnerships, and USF’s Lynn Chisholm, director of internships and career readiness, to hear about how USF created the badging program, how students can earn badges, and how the program is helping students demonstrate sought-after skills to earn their first job out of college.
