Preparing for your Future Career
Making connections and understanding your skillset will be important components of your college journey, and it is never too early to start. Making connections helps you to explore possible career paths, learn from others and build your network. Understanding your skillset gives you a better idea of how the skills you develop at school are utilized, articulate your skills to employers in a common language and allows you to adapt to the changing labour market.
- Attend networking events
- Join a student club
- Run for student government
- Visit instructor office hours
- Job shadow
- Other extracurriculars
Understanding your Skillset
- Read your course syllabus and assignment outlines – look for the skills associated with your coursework
- Reflect on your current or previous job description(s)
- Keep your employment documents up to date
- Make a skills inventory – here is an example of how you may document your skills using the Student Core Competencies as a foundation

Student Core Competencies
Student Core Competencies might be described as soft skills, life skills, professional skills, or employment skills. They are a tool to help you, as a student, understand and articulate the skills you are developing in the classroom. All students will develop these seven skills to varying levels throughout their time at Lethbridge College.
- Problem Solving
- Global Citizenship
- Critical Thinking
- Teamwork & Collaboration
- Career & Personal Development
So, why should the Student Core Competencies matter to you? There are very few (if any) jobs that will not require you to have “soft skills.” As our world becomes more and more automated it will be crucial for all members of the workforce to have skills that allow them to find solutions to problems, work with people and adapt to changing situations. Additionally, these skills matter to employers in all industries and being able to identify and describe your skillset is an advantage when searching for a job.
