Ready Day 1 Career Plan

The Office of Career and Professional Development recommends the Ready Day 1 Career Plan to assist Georgia Southern students in preparing for life after graduation and to be career ready! This plan was developed based on Career Readiness competencies and standards that employers are looking for. Students can even take their goals for career readiness to the next level by becoming “Ready Day 1 Certified.” Certified students will receive a special cord at graduation and ensure employers they are, in fact, ready for success on the first day.
