The 4th Annual Career Competencies Symposium (4.0), building on three previous sold out events in 2017, 2018, and 2019, will engage attendees in approaches to implementing substantive, institutional-wide strategies for both beginners as well as those with competency initiatives already in place. Symposium content and program design is based on four essential components:
- Conceptualizing and Planning â€“ Establish a Plan
- Coalition Building â€“ Stakeholder Engagement
- Resources â€“ People, Money, Technology
- Assessment â€“ Measuring Impact, Making Improvements
Sessions will facilitate meaningful sharing and collaboration among all attendees, accompanied by tailored discussions and activities to maximize learning and strategic takeaways. Institutions sending teams (career services, administrators, faculty, advisors, etc.), which is highly encouraged, will be able to attend relevant affinity group sessions to hear multiple perspectives on implementation strategies. Institutions sending an individual will be able to network with other individual attendees to collaborate on strategy development and approaches to implementation.
