Description

Many students hear the words "career center" and think only of finding a job after graduation. However, Career Services at the U of M offers so much more to students! There are seven undergraduate career centers (see below) that offer a wide range of services to students from each college. Each center is staffed by professional career counselors or coaches that can help you with:

  • Career exploration and decision-making

  • Self-awareness through career assessments

  • Resources for internship and job searching

  • Informational interviewing to explore careers

  • Developing resumes, cover letters, and interviewing skills

  • Guiding through the graduate school application process

If you are feeling pretty certain about your major, or are down to exploring a few majors in your college, meeting with a career counselor or coach from your college's career center can be a great next step to get you planning how this major will help prepare you for a variety of career paths. If you are still exploring a range of majors and careers, there are great resources on each career center's website for you to explore.

Career classes are also offered to guide you through the career development process more broadly. These courses may also help with general job searching skills such as resume writing, interviewing, and networking.
