Career Success Outcomes

Career Readiness

A student who achieves career readiness can demonstrate the requisite knowledge and skills that broadly prepare college graduates for a successful transition into the workplace or postgraduate studies (adapted for SJSU from NACE’s Career Readiness Competencies).

Initial Career Success

A student achieves initial career success when they have secured employment that requires a college degree or acceptance into a postgraduate program within six months after graduation.

Economic Self-Sufficiency

A student attains economic self-sufficiency if they have the ability to meet their basic needs without government assistance within one year of graduation.
