What is Life Ready?

Go forth knowing you’re ready for…anything.

It’s more than being ready for an interview or for your first job. It’s knowing yourself, it’s being confident. It’s skills beyond your career. It’s being secure that you will dominate the second you step foot off of this campus.

Let’s get you Life Ready

Connect what you know 
with who you know

It sounds awful, we know…networking with people you don’t know. Most students despise it. However the result could be a relationship that is key to your career.

Tools for Connecting Events for Connecting

“You coached me at the Career Fair, helped me through the application process, and finally gave me valuable information on how to interview. What you and your office do is amazing, and I will forever be grateful.” K. Flaherty - '19, Computer Science
