Student Opportunities

The Center for Career Preparation & Partnerships (CCPP) is committed to providing you with a solid foundation that will position you for future career success. Whether you transfer to continue your studies, or decide to seek employment, we want to see you thrive. Our aim is to help you develop skills that will help you excel at Guttman, throughout the transfer process, and in both career and life.

No matter what career path you chose, employers expect you to graduate with certain skills that will allow you to make an immediate impact. We refer to the skills employers look for as career readiness competencies. We believe that if you commit to becoming competent in these skills, you will increase your employability in a competitive labor market. Our career readiness competencies are adopted from the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE). They are:

  • Career & Self Development
  • Communication
  • Critical Thinking
  • Equity & Inclusion
  • Leadership
  • Professionalism
  • Teamwork
  • Technology

Guttman provides many opportunities for you to develop these competencies, both inside and outside of the classroom
