Career and Professional Development

The office of career and professional development at UWS offers resources to students and alumni related to business success in their chosen field. We have refined these services over the years and continue to solicit feedback to meet the needs of both current students and alumni. We provide structured assistance to empower students and alumni to reach their professional goals.

The office of career and professional development provides focused guidance in the following areas:

  • Establishing connections to jobs and employers via Switchboard or other sites as well as connections to alumni and mentors through the Alumni Mentor Network and Peer Mentorship Program.
  • Providing and offering resources and education for creating resumes and curriculum vitae, interviewing skills, contract negotiation, market analysis, business plan creation and marketing through our online toolbox, webinars and in-person sessions.
  • Facilitating opportunities for students to connect with the internal and external community to practice networking, public speaking, unique sales propositions (“elevator speech”) and other essential professional development skills.

Switchboard

For professional opportunities, mentorship and advice, we hope you will consider creating an account and posting a personal ‘ask’ or ‘offer’ on UWS Switchboard. UWS Switchboard is free from spammers, advertisers, and large-scale brokers. It is a place where our community members can ask for what they need or offer what they have to share.
