New Competencies for Getting through the Digital Gauntlet to a Job Interview

Hello LINCS Colleague,

Are you designing curriculum or teaching adult learners to prepare for jobs or careers? Do you manage a career pathways program for adult learners? If so, my Adult Literacy Education blog article,  After Career Preparation Mastery, Getting through the Digital Gauntlet to a Job Interview, may be of interest.

The article is brief. At the beginning, I tip my hat to competency-based adult education and backward design approaches to career pathways curriculum development, then explain why these are not enough to help adult learners get on their career pathway and get jobs. At the end, I list the new new job application competencies.

After reading the article, it would be great to hear your comments here. Does the article resonate with your experience, or is this new information? Is your program already teaching these new competencies? If so, how? Are some of these competencies more important than others? Are there other digital competencies needed to create a successful job application?

I look forward to hearing your thoughts.
