Assisting You in Helping Your Students

 "Think of the path our students take to their professional career as a camping trip. Our faculty does an outstanding job of 'filling the students 'backpacks' with the knowledge and practical skills they need to thrive once they reach their destination. At the Career Services Center, we provide the maps and compasses, and serve as guides for students conducting their career exploration."
-Michael E. Reeves, Former Director, UAA Career Services Center

The mutual goal of both Career Services and UAA faculty and staff is student success. By working together, faculty, staff, and Career Services can ensure that the transition from student to a member of the work force is as seamless as possible. 

We Help Your Students Find the Right Fit

We help students determine the right career for their interests, career goals, skills, values, and personality. During their academic careers, students return to the Career Services Center to fine-tune essential career development and job-search skills. We are a student's best resource for job outlook, salary, and employment trend information.

Some comments from UAA Faculty & Staff after working with staff from Career Services:

"I wish to thank you for providing support for Alaska SkillsUSA. I very much appreciate the help you provided with the Job Interview Contest and your continued support of the Auto and Diesel Technology programs at the University of Alaska Anchorage. The event was a huge success this year and I heard many positive comments from the students."
-Heavy Duty Transportation and Equipment Assistant Professor

We Know Employers Who Want to Know You

At the Career Services Center, we work directly with employers, who often ask for the contact information of faculty members who could help them to target students in a particular major or discipline. Ideally, employers would like to develop mutually beneficial relationships with faculty and can provide many forms of support. We can facilitate that connection. We also have resources to help faculty understand their ethical and legal responsibilities towards students.

Resources for Faculty and Staff

Career Services offers several resources for you as staff to utilize in your classroom and to help your students make the connection between the academic studies and their future careers. More information is available about these resources on the webpages to the left under the Facutly & Staff tab.

We also offer tours of Career Services, presentations at department meetings, and individual appointments in order to provide faculty and instructors with a better understanding of our services and facilities. 

Many students seek career guidance and assistance from faculty and advisors. The CSC resources and services may guide you in meetings with students who bring career concerns to you.
