For many students coming to college also comes with uncertainty of their career path.
UW Oshkosh has several resources available to students to help discover interests, plan career paths and identify future jobs or internships:
MAP-Works is a system that uses surveys to help students identify their attitudes and behaviors that might impact their success at UW Oshkosh. The short surveys are issued twice: once in the fall and once in the spring. Students have access to the results and a report after taking the surveys. The reports help students understand what they need to do in order to be successful. Visit the MAP-Works website for more information.
A great resource for all UW Oshkosh students is the Undergraduate Advising Resource Center. At the UARC, advisers can help students sign up for classes, choose a major and navigate their academic path. Students can schedule appointments with advisers or even stop by during drop-in hours.
Located in the new UW Oshkosh Alumni Welcome and Conference Center, the Business Success Center (BSC) helps connect students with local employers. The BSC recruits students and connects them with internships at local businesses. Whether you’re looking for part-time work during the school year or full-time work during the summer, get connected with the BSC.
Titan Jobs is an online source for job searching. Here students can create a profile, upload a resume, search for jobs, internships or co-ops, register for campus events and more. All incoming undergraduate students are automatically given an account to Titan Jobs.
Need help brushing up on interviewing or job searching skills? There are one-credit professional skills courses available to students. There are classes available to all majors, or there are major-specific classes available. These courses help students improve their resume, perfect their interviewing skills, expand their network and more.
Career Services recently released an online tool to help students discover jobs in their professional area of interest. With the Career GPS, students can search for jobs based on their field of study, learn about what degree or certifications are needed for future jobs, create or upload a resume and more.
Many of the programs at UW Oshkosh have their own student-led clubs and organizations. At these club meetings, there are often guest speakers from the professional world, giving students the chance to meet with professionals and network. Students can also discover other helpful information such as internship opportunities at club meetings. Some clubs even go on trips to industry-related events!
Your professors are one of the best career resources on campus. Get to know your professors and ask them if they can help you out with any career-related opportunities.
