The Gator Ready initiative aims to ensure students have the skills employers seek by aligning student involvement with career readiness competencies. In addition to academic achievements, employers seek a set of competencies that demonstrate students have the skills and attitudes needed to thrive in the current world of work. Gator Ready was designed to help students track their skill development across these competencies and provides evidence to employers of their dedication to skill development.
Gator Ready integrates events and activities from Career and Leadership Programs, Heavener Student Organizations, Business College Council, Business Career Services, and all Heavener sponsored events. Students can check-in to events by scanning QR-codes or requesting completion of activities through the Suitable app. All events and tasks are associated with career readiness competencies and levels that allow students to easily recognize the skills being developed through participation of different Heavener events. Students can even self-report their involvement and work experience to gain additional competency points.
The Gator Ready initiative is powered by Suitable. Get started today but downloading the Suitable app or by logging into Suitable with your GatorLink email.
