Work with us from Day One.
In year one, students should explore and determine careers that fit their strengths and goals best, and receive advice on how to network strategically in chosen fields to discover opportunities. UTC uses a variety of assessments to assist in your exploration. Want a sneak peek? Take a quick personality test here or dig in deeper to explore your major and career fit using Focus 2 assessments (access code is mocs).
As a sophomore, students should conduct company research, formulating a career plan, building confidence through professional development, and arranging informational interviews with targeted employers toward internships or co-op programs.
As a junior, the partnership deepens as we help students develop professional resumes, tailored cover letters, and interview skills until they feel sufficiently prepared to impress. By the midpoint of junior year, we hope students will seek internships or co-ops, as successful experiences in the field have a strong possibility of converting to employment upon graduation!
If students have followed this career success plan throughout their college career at CECS, as seniors, a student’s main responsibility will be exploring opportunities, acing interviews and negotiating into an ideal position.
Your Handshake account will help students gain access to many job opportunities at companies seeking to hire a Moc!
We gladly support CECS Master’s and PhD students through our services and events, and encourage this professional population to use our office to further advance their careers.
We are with our students every step of the journey!
