Careers are collaborative at UVM. 

Faculty and staff are essential contributors to students' career-readiness and success after UVM. There are many ways for us to work together to integrate career development across the student experience. 

Students are eager to understand how the content of your course or student leadership opportunity will help them in the “real world.” Galvanize their learning by incorporating Career Readiness in your syllabus or student staff training without needing to be an expert in career development. We have prepared all the content you’ll need to help your students connect the dots between your learning outcomes, the career competencies they’re developing, and how this all gets articulated to potential employers.

Supporting you during COVID-19

We know that the move to remote instruction has been disruptive for many members of the campus community. If you are interested in adding or enhancing career education content in your course or with students you advise or supervise, we have recorded two of our standard presentations: Intro to the Career Center and Networking & Building Your Online Professional Presence. These can be embedded within your course or emailed out to students.

If you have any questions or need help getting started, please send us an email at career@uvm.edu.
