PUT YOUR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT INTO OVERDRIVE WITH HURON’S CAREER ACCELERATOR PROGRAM
Take part in Huron’s prestigious professional readiness development program. Combine the traditional advantages of your Liberal Arts degree with the tangible skills and experiences you need to become highly employable.
DISTINGUISH YOURSELF FROM THE COMPETITION
Alongside industry-leading alumni and associates, we have custom-built the Career Accelerator Program (CAP) to ensure you stand out in the increasingly complex and competitive job market. In answer to employers’ rising demand for applicants who have relatable industry experience, Huron has designed this mandatory bundling of components, which you must complete to become CAP certified.
This rigorous career development stream is the perfect complement to the in-demand skills nurtured within Huron’s prestigious humanities environment.
Students who successfully complete this multi-tiered program will earn a designation that brings their resume to the top of the pile and secures your interview. CAP signals to employers their newest applicant is fully prepared to contribute to their workplace and stands out as a future leader.
The Career Accelerator Program is a rigorous professional development program for current Huron Students to distinguish themselves from the competition. Through the program components, students will gain highly employable skills and prepare for the workforce. Prior to graduation from Huron, students will have the opportunity to engage in the core program components, build technical skills and participate in optional specializations.
In order to participate in the Career Accelerator Program, students must complete the below noted steps:
- Complete the linked Expression of Interest Form
- After completing this form, students will be informed of upcoming dates for a mandatory information session to learn more about the program
- After attending an information session, you will be provided with direction to formally apply to the program
Students will be notified of their admissions status by the end of October.
In order to successfully complete the program, students must engage in each of the components prior to graduating from Huron. This provides students with 3+ years to gain experience and build meaningful skills to enter into the workforce! In exceptional circumstances, a student may be able to complete the program in 1 year.
Upon joining the program, students will connect with their personal Career Development Coordinator to map out their time to ensure all program components can be completed prior to graduation. Students will meet with their Career Development Coordinator at least once per year to ensure they are on track to complete the program and will be enrolled in an exclusive online platform to track their participation.
Current and returning Huron students will have the opportunity to submit a request for retroactive activity approvals into the Career Accelerator Program. After being accepted into the program students will submit an online request and will meet with their Career Development Coordinator to determine eligibility of past experiences.
Applications for this program will be open until October on an annual basis. Students who have applied to the program will receive an admission decision via email by mid-October.
Additional Specializations are not required for participation or completion of the Career Accelerator Program. These specializations are a way to continue to develop your employable skills and competencies, while building your professional network and visibility within the community.
