Career readiness

Wikis > Career readiness

Career readiness, or employment readiness, refers to how developmentally ready (in terms of level of exploration, awareness of implications, and maturity) clients are for making their initial career decisions. Their level of readiness will determine how ready they are to find, acquire, and keep an appropriate job, with little or no outside help, as well as to be able to manage transitions to new jobs.
