Career Readiness

As part of the SkillSurvey's Career Readiness Project, the ISA Career Readiness Course is designed based on National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) 8 core competencies. Before and after your internship, you will be assessed based on these career readiness competencies so you can review your progress over the course of your internship.

“My internship in South Korea was extremely influential in my job interviewing process, and largely because of my internship experience, I just landed a job as a Content Editor with H&R Block. This internship was incredibly valuable not just for my personal experience, but it has definitely helped me in my career goals as well.”
