There are several definitions on what career readiness involves.

Career readiness is a mixture of all these and more. Here at JenniferRpriest.org, we consider all the aspects of career readiness plus focus on preparing an individual for the workplace beginning from the inside and working to the outside.


Career Readiness Defined:

Dictionary.com defines Career as an occupation undertaken for a significant period of a person’s life and with opportunities for progress; while Readiness is defined as a willingness to do something or the state of being fully prepared for something.

In a nutshell we at JenniferRpriest.org define Career Readiness as learning methods to progressively improve your life by attaining capabilities necessary to strategically plan a career and take action towards achieving a goal.

Career Readiness as an ongoing process of thinking about your interests (passions), what you are capable of doing and what you love to do and working a plan that will help you operate in those interests. Many people go through life just doing work they don’t like and get stuck there without ever progressing into a career that is meaningful and fulfilling.  While getting career ready you explore your life passions, gifts and talents and find options available to you to use those skills.
