Jo Chytka Directs UW’s Johnson Career Center
June 3, 2013 — Jo Chytka is the new director of the Peter M. and Paula Green Johnson Business Career Center at the University of Wyoming College of Business.
She has served as the director of UW’s Center for Advising and Career Services since 1986 and, most recently, as the university’s interim registrar. Chytka also served on numerous professional and university committees to further the career awareness and success of UW students. Additionally, she is a member of the Career Benchmarking Group, composed of top career center directors from 30 nationally recognized universities, a think tank for the profession.
“I am excited to build upon the successes of the Johnson Career Center and to work with College of Business students to further their careers,” says Chytka, who received both her marketing and MBA degrees from UW.
“Jo is one of those special leaders who are widely respected at UW and beyond,” says College of Business Dean Brent Hathaway. “Landing someone of her caliber is a real accomplishment for the college.”
In 2008, Peter and Paula Johnson donated $1 million to endow a center in the UW College of Business to help students prepare for careers. Their gift was matched by state funds. Peter Johnson is president of Sinclair Oil Corp.
The center provides career management services for UW's business students, including career counseling, job search strategies and marketing and networking tools to assist students in launching their careers, Hathaway says.
