What is Eagle Elevate

Eagle Elevate provides the opportunity for students to learn about, develop, and document career readiness competencies that employers seek in addition to technical skills. These are soft skills like communications, teamwork, leadership, critical thinking, and more. Students stand out when applying for internships or jobs when they can demonstrate these skills.

Why Eagle Elevate?

Having a high GPA upon graduation is a great accomplishment, yet employers also seek  career readiness competencies.  See the competencies below.

Eagle Elevate helps Embry-Riddle students acquire these skills and learn how to demonstrate them on resumes and in interviews.
