GET YOUR STUDENTS
READY, DAY 1
HOW IT WORKS
Students watch video simulations that represent real-world scenarios they will face in their life and career.
Our growing list of simulations include:
The Elevator Pitch
Make the Most of Networking Events
Get Noticed at Career Fairs
First Job: Negotiating Salary
First Job: Inclusivity in the Workplace
First Job: Customer/Client Service
First Job: Collaboration and Teamwork
Students are immersed into the simulation as if they are an actual character and are prompted to provide their video response using any internet connected device with a camera - smartphone, tablet, or laptop.
The underlying technology is built on a foundation of sound and proven student and adult learning theory, including active learning, modeling, microlearning, behavioral coaching and self-reflection.
Multiple studies at several universities have consistently demonstrated the impact of the process on building productive career readiness behaviors. Average student performance improved 57%.
What’s more, the platform is flexible. Create and use your own simulations, share simulations with other colleges and universities or draw from our existing and growing library of video simulations.
SELF-GUIDED OR INSTRUCTOR-LED
Ready Day 1 is equally comfortable in the classroom, as guided learning in the career center, or self-guided wherever there is a student and smartphone.
Professors have used Ready Day 1 as part of their classes to prepare students on critical career competencies. Students are provided feedback reports, including suggestions for improvements. The instructor is provided a complete learning guide with PowerPoints, speaking points, students’ video responses and summary of the classroom data.
In the career center, Ready Day 1 can be used as the basis of a one-on-one session or students can conveniently take it on their own time, 24/7 using our self-guided learning process.
READY, DAY 1?
In two studies at a large university, all students participating in the Ready Day 1 self-guided program improved their career readiness skills.
We measured real behavioral change on the competencies, not just knowledge of the work competencies.
We designed our platform to be flexible and without unnecessary complexity. It allows us to tailor the platform to your use case meaning you can more quickly achieve your goals.
Our support through the implementation phase is designed to quickly get you familiar with the platform and its possibilities.
SIMPLE TO USE
A scalable, low-cost self-guided program that students can complete at their convenience, 24/7/365.
Ready, Day 1 is easy to access via smartphone or computer. All you need is an internet capable device and our platform will do the rest.
Whether you have one candidate or 35,000 our technology will smoothly handle your demands.
“The simulations are based on real-world scenarios that our students will inevitably encounter in the world of work.
The feedback we’ve received from our students has been very positive.”
