Whether you are returning to campus this fall or you are starting your first semester at UW-Green Bay, our staff asks you to consider what role Career Services can play in your future. Research shows that college students that utilize Career Services are better able to plan for their futures, gain good experience and make solid decisions about their future career and employment goals.
Career Services is here to help you explore academic majors, learn about career fields, gain experience and implement plans to make graduation and life after graduation successful! Think about these strategies:
FIRST YEAR STUDENTS: Make an appointment to talk with a staff member about your intended major or academic interests so you can establish a solid start.
SOPHOMORES: You should have declared your major and need to begin to think about the connection of your academics to your future plans after graduation. Our staff can help you to explore fields and talk with professionals so you have good information to make decisions about what you want to do in your future.
JUNIORS: Experience will be key to your success after graduation! Schedule a time with a staff member to explore internships, leadership experiences, volunteer experiences and other opportunities to build your resume. If graduate school is in your future, you need to use this year to explore programs and plan for required entrance exams.
SENIORS: Your last 2-3 semesters are critical! Applications are due for graduate and professional school. Employers begin hiring upcoming college graduates in the fall as well as spring. Revise your resume and attend any events with employers you can. Make sure you are using Phoenix Recruitment Online to its FULLEST potential. Schedule a time to review your timeline and plans leading up to graduation with a member of our staff.
We look forward to working with all of you this year. Welcome Back and have a great academic year!
