We are here to help you!

Career Services can help you with your career goals your very first year. Our staff has noticed, and it has been proven in national surveys (see below) that students who utilize our services earlier and more often are more prepared and more successful upon graduation. If you are motivated to gain relevant experiences, create professional application documents that will stand out from the crowd, and learn how to build a solid network, you will have the tools to find, and land, a position when you graduate. 

A few was to begin utilizing our services:

  • Make an appointment to learn about possible careers in your major
  • Create a resume that you can build upon during your years at UWRF
  • Attend Career Services events to build your professional skills and knowledge

To make an appointment, find contact and location information at our About Us page.

 

Benefits of Utilizing Career Services


Results from NACE’s Student Survey show:

  • The likelihood of a student getting a job offer increased with the frequency of career center use: Students who used the career center four or more times a semester were more likely to have job offers than those who used it once a semester. 
  • Use of career services resulted in higher median salaries, and median salaries climbed with increased use. There was a difference in median salary of more than $5,700 between students who never went to career services ($35,978) and those who went four or more times per semester ($41,714). Students who went to career services once per semester had a median starting salary of $37,020, while the median salary for those who went two or three times per semester was $37,898.
  • Freshmen have increased their use of career services. In general, the increases are in the "prep"-related work, e.g., getting help in developing their resumes, practice interviewing, and researching employers. Clearly, freshmen understand that they need to be prepared, and are getting an early start
