Figuring out what’s next after high school is a tough decision. Career exploration is vital for your future success. Let Career Ready Monroe help you get moving in the right direction. 

Career readiness is critical in schools because it equips you with the skills necessary to navigate the workforce while preparing you for life after high school.  Career Ready Monroe simplifies this process by bringing the resources to you.

Career readiness includes important topics as:

  • communication
  • critical thinking
  • emotional intelligence
  • financial literacy
  • time management
  • stress management

According to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, career readiness skills, also known as employability skills, “provide students with a competitive edge during interviews and internships for current and future careers” and “can differentiate a good employee from a great one.” Career Ready Monroe is a one-stop-shop for career success.
