"Clemson is excited for the potential of this platform to help students get a 360 degree view of where they are in their competency development and allow institutions to strategically identify where to help students further develop to be ready for life after college."

Donna Sosnowski

"Babson has had major success in developing career ready graduates.  Our partnership with the Career Readiness Project will amplify and focus our efforts on the skills and competencies that are key differentiators for college students entering the workforce"
