Career Services

Welcome to Career Services!

Our Center provides services and resources to support professional growth and skill development for UPB students. We partner with you from your first step on campus to graduation day, helping you grow and find your passion so you can fulfill your purpose. We do this through individualized career counseling, experiential learning, skill-building and networking opportunities for students to engage in lifelong professional development. This path requires the ability to communicate effectively, to collaborate, to build and sustain professional relationships based on respect, to engage effectively in multicultural teams, to identify future options and to build the skills and knowledge to flourish in a changing world.   

Our approach is inclusive: we commit to ensuring that all identities, perspectives and experiences are heard, respected and valued.

Our approach is holistic: we recognize the unique needs of each person, acknowledge the multitude of factors that influence decision-making and maintain an environment of trust, honesty and transparency.
