Summer 2014 Focus: College and Career Readiness for Learners of All Ages
By: Rich Feller
Does college and career readiness (CCR) look like it did during your youth? That question drives this article as career development charts its course into its second century. Shifting the focus of CCR beyond youth, time specific events, and graduate “destination rates” is proposed here. “Career readiness has no definite endpoint. To be career ready requires adaptability and a commitment to lifelong learning” (Career Readiness Partnership Council, 2012). Life design theory, narrative practices, and understanding changes in learning, work, and “ageless aging” (Leider 2014) have coalesced to emphasize readiness for a lifetime of transitions.
Rich Feller, PhD (email@example.com) is Professor of Counseling and Career Development and Distinguished Teaching Scholar at Colorado State University, and Past President of the National Career Development Association.
