The Career Center is a unit of the Division of Student Life that exists to support the career and professional development of UO students and alumni. Our mission is to help you develop long-term career goals and strategies, facilitate self-exploration and discovery, connect with potential employers, and empower and challenge you to fulfill your potential.
Career planning services help students clarify career goals. Individual counseling and career assessment services are available to help students select majors to advance their goals. The career resource area houses a collection of career and employment resources. Information is provided about local, regional, and national internship programs.
Each year thousands of jobs—part-time, full-time, work-study, summer, international, and internship opportunities—are listed in Duck Connect, the university’s online database of job, internships, and other career resources. In addition, job search agents match opportunities with student interests. The on-campus recruiting program brings more than 200 employers to campus each year, and three major career fairs and more than 20 career-related events are held annually.
Workshops and group sessions on self-assessment, résumé writing, interview skills, and job- and internship-search strategies are available throughout the academic year. Panels of industry experts demystify the world of careers and employment and offer job-search advice. Career counselors are available on a daily basis to assist individuals in this process.
Currently enrolled students are encouraged to use the Career Center’s services throughout their education.
