The Career Services Office assists students in finding meaningful careers. The following services are available to assist in this process.

 

Career Events: Each year Career Services coordinates several major career exploration events that allow students to meet employers on an informal basis to discuss career options, internship positions, and employment opportunities.

 

Online Services: From the Career Services’ home page, students can view and apply for regularly updated internships and jobs, sign up for on-campus interviews and upload resumes for employers to view online. The home page also provides a complete schedule of Career Services sponsored career fairs, events and workshops, extensive “how to” information for resume writing, cover letter writing and interviewing, links to the top job Web sites and major employer home pages, graduate and professional school information, links to career guidance information and an annually updated report on employment information of recent UW-L graduates.

 

On-Campus Interviewing: Employers from business, industry, government, and education visit the campus to interview students for employment opportunities.

 

Cooperative Education and Internship Program: Internships help students integrate classroom with practical experience through experiences related to their academic and occupational goals. These experiences, for which a student can receive credit, include working for regional, national, and international businesses, government agencies, and community organizations.

 

To participate in the Cooperative Education and Internship Program, students must meet grade point average and course prerequisites. Students must be at their internship site during the academic term for which they are registered for academic credit. Thirty credits may be taken and recorded on the academic record; however no more than 15 credits are applicable to a degree. Students should contact the Career Services Office during their sophomore year to learn more.

Departmental internships also are offered.
