Here at the University Career Center, we are committed to continuing to support you. We provide fun, interactive workshops for your group that will be facilitated via Zoom by one of our excellent Career Coaches! Workshops are a great way for us to lean-in to our mission statement of creating a dynamic space for students to get inspired and feel supported in their post-graduation plans. It's also a great way to meet new people and engage in activities outside of academics.
You can stay on top of our current offerings by checking out Handshake! Most of our workshops are around 50 to 60 minutes in length and are interactive -- they may require 10-15 minutes of pre-work before attending. Please, RSVP in Handshake for the event to make sure you are aware of the assignment and to confirm if you are able to attend. Some workshops may be closed for a specific student group/class.
For Winter 2021, the University Career Center will offer the following workshops, open to all majors & schools (registration required on Handshake)
- Ready, Set, Intern! for First-Year Students
- Internship & Job Search Labs + Resume Labs
- Coffee Chats
As a first-year student, figuring out what you need to do to get an internship in the era of COVID-19 or understanding what interests you have is hard. It’s difficult to know what employers look for or how might your interests equal a job or a major. No worries, we designed an experience just for you.
You should come if you…
- Are a first-year student or a transfer student and want to create community with your classmates.
- Want to know what experiences employers look for and how to get it.
- Have been asked at least 50 times already, “what’s your major?”
- Aren’t totally sure on what the “University Career Center” does.

Internship & Job Search Labs
These virtual experiences are designed to give you strategies and motivation to get you back on the right track with internship and job searching. If you’re not sure about what job/internship to search for or haven’t had any luck with getting interviews this is the place to start.
Facilitated by our career coaches you'll get to explore Handshake, the University Career Alumni Network, and to learn about other tools you can use to build a strategy that works for you. Click here to check our upcoming lab dates.
Get real-time, personalized support by checking out the virtual Resume Lab. We begin with 15 minutes of quick FAQs and straight facts and then we break up in small groups to get real and immediate feedback with one of our advisors.
We will discuss and educate you on…
1. Design and format
2. Writing a great bullet point
3. Targeting your resume for specific internships/jobs with our digital tools
Labs are also a great opportunity to connect with other students who have been facing similar challenges and to build community with your Career Coach. Click here to check our upcoming lab dates.
We're excited for our "Coffee Chat" round table with your very own coach from University Career Center. Each session is 30 minutes and we are invested in answering all of your questions.
