Career Services



The mission of Career Services, a department within the Student Life Division, is to encourage and assist students and alumni in the discovery of their unique talents and gifts, development of career and job-related skills, and leadership in purpose and vision as they pursue their calling.




The Career Center offers several programs to assist the student in their career decision-making process. The assessment tools include the on-line Traitify, Strong Interest Inventory College Profile, and I-Start Strong. Each provides a collection of data related to a student’s abilities, interests, and values.


Career Coaching

Career Services is committed to assisting each student in career planning and development. A realistic career path strategy will be mapped out and explored through regular visits with the Career Center. Effective career planning is a 4-year activity with specific tasks to be completed including shadowing and internships. Students should Start Early, Get Prepared & Be Noticed for career success upon graduation.

UMHB 4100 Career Coaching & Planning Course

Each Semester Career Services offers a Career Coaching & Planning Course for one hour academic credit to assist students in career development education. This course is designed to offer students enhanced career coaching through personalized coaching, planning and course of action with opportunity for independent study. Activities and assignments are designed to meet personal career calling and planning needs.


The Career Center serves as a clearinghouse for job leads, and the center is in contact with employers striving to expand networks for internships, part-time, and full-time opportunities. The center does not serve as a staffing or placement service, but is a resource for contacts and job postings. All jobs posted by recruiters can be found through Handshake. Handshake also provides Career Services event information, appointment scheduling, and company reviews from other college students.


Job Search Skills & Tools

A wide range of skills and tools are required in today’s competitive and challenging economic environment. Students will have the opportunity to participate in group workshops or individual meetings to sharpen their skills and develop documents to best market them for employment. This includes resumes, cover letters, personal statements, writing samples, professional portfolios, and online profiles such as LinkedIn.



The Career Center maintains a library of career-related materials. Available on the Career Services website is “What Can I Do With This Major?”, Glassdoor, “ Going Global,” and “Candid Career Videos.” Other resources available include tips for interviewing, attending job fairs, and researching employers.
