Career Counseling

Please email to request an appointment; tell us in the message what type of assistance you are looking for, ex. resume, job search, career assessments, etc.

Resources including Handshake are useful tools that are available to all UW students from the ACES homepage; use your UW username and password to login.

Career counselors are like a passenger in the car that you are driving. They help you notice different paths to take, bumps in the road, or when to pull over to look at a map in more detail. You are the driver in your “career car”. With this in mind, career counselors do not tell you what to do. They assist you to clarify what you most want in life so that you can find a career path that connects to who you are as a person. You can read more about our mission here.
