CEMS Career Readiness Program

Welcome Faculty/Staff

The College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences is interested in building relationships with faculty in support of your teaching goals.

4-Year Plan for Career Success

The 4 Year Plan for Career Success is a key element of the new university-wide career initiative. This deceptively simple "roadmap" is designed to help students develop and realize academic and career success, beginning in their first year at UVM. It's a comprehensive tool you can use to engage students in high impact practices that support learning and integrate career development into your work with students in the clasroom or in advising.

Faculty members report using the plan with good results. Here are some examples:

  • Collaborate with the Career Center or the CEMS Career Readiness Program Coordinator on career-related alumni panels or class presentations
  • Assign specific activities on the 4 Year Plan as part of course requirements
  • Ask students to bring their 4 Year Plan for Career Success to their advising session and set goals for the next semester

Samples of the 4-year plan for career success for CEMS students can be found here.


If you are contacted by an employer about a job or internship, please forward the position and information to Lauren Petrie, CEMS Career Readiness Program Coordinator, at We will post the job/internship on the UVM Catamount Job Link and forward the positions to CEMS students with our email account.
