I had never heard of Equipped for the Future Work-Readiness Credential, SkillsUSA Workforce Ready System, Student Job Ready Credential, Work Readiness Credential, and WorkKeys Readiness.  

I do like giving the student a chance to write the answers to the questions a head of time. Although it wouldn't happen like that on an interview, writing as opposed to speaking may bring out thoughts more clearly and then easier to practice verbally.

Resume, cover letter and even refences are a way of marketing skills that are a fit for the job for which the student is applying.

Comment on Mary Nourse's post: I would say to that student: That is great! Why did they hire you? They will say I am strong and experienced with the construction field. Perfect, that is exactly what you will do on a formal interview for your in-field position. You will give them examples of how you are skilled in the field (from work or school). Finding the jobs in your new field may involve more than just showing up depending on the industry. Would you like to know the most common way, students in your program get invited to an interview?

I learned the importance of surveys for both employers and graduates.

I never really thought about teaching students and near graduates how to ask for a raise down the road. 

Offering an array of services will allow the students to make a personalized career plan.

I learned the importance of an effective Career Services department to the entire organization.

A well designed rubric provided before the start of a project, will make expectations clear and provide enhanced learning.

Setting the example by showing self-discipline, time management and proper online communication.
