Career & major decision-making
You and the CRC are critical influences on students' abilities to obtain employment upon graduation.
We are available to provide your students with individual sessions on the following topics:
- Choosing or changing a major
- Choosing or changing career and graduate school plans
- Graduate school application and personal statements
- Developing resumes and cover letters
- Finding internship, externship or co-op positions
- Finding a full-time job
- Interviewing strategies
- Considering a job offer (salary negotiation)
We also offer drop-in services for basic services such as resume critiquing, and job search or interview preparation. Encourage your students to view our Career Planning services for information on how to request an appointment or to find out times for drop-in services.
Our Career Courses offer first- and second-year students the chance to learn how skills and interests impact career and major decisions in SLS 2301. Third- and fourth-year students can explore job search techniques in SLS 2302.
UF offers more than 150 undergraduate majors, which can be overwhelming. Encourage your students to try CHOMP to search for career information, determine their skill sets and explore career opportunities within their chosen major.
Encourage your students to visit our CHOMP page to get started.
Students can build resumes using Resume Builder, one of many features in Gator CareerLink. Students access this by logging into Gator CareerLink at www.crc.ufl.edu > select "my documents" > choose "resume builder" > follow the steps.
Career workshops can help your student through all aspects of their career development process. Each workshop series has a specific focus and target audience, ranging from freshmen to graduate students. Our workshops are regularly listed in Gator CareerLink. Log in at www.crc.ufl.edu, click on "events" and select "workshops" to see a current listing.
We want to make sure your students are hired. They certainly will have the academic abilities, but do they have what it takes to succeed at interviewing? We're here to help with our Mock Interviewing services.
Students can practice interviewing face-to-face, with employers and online. Face-to-face and employer mock interviews (when available) can be scheduled through Gator CareerLink.
Face-to-face mock interviews are 45-minute simulated interviews where students can practice interviewing and get constructive feedback from one of our Career Ambassadors.
Virtual mock interviews, using Interview Stream, can be customized to expertise level and recorded for future viewing. Access the virtual mock interviews through Gator CareerLink.
