Meet with Career and Professional Development Professionals

In addition to browsing the wealth of information on Center’s site, you can book an individual appointment to talk with someone about your career questions.

Recent alums are also eligible to use the Center. 

Networking and Exploring Career Interests

As early as possible in your time at UMW, register for Handshake, which will steer you to career information, internship opportunities, career-preparation events, and employment opportunities relevant to your major and interests.

If you are unsure of your ultimate career direction or are open to many possibilities, try the Focus2 career assessment tool.

Access both of these resources from the Center’s website using your UMW credentials.
