UE Connect

As a graduating senior, you can talk with an alumnus from either your field of study or the geographic area where you are moving. UE Connect is a collaboration with the Office of Alumni and Parent Relations.

Career advising

Work one-on-one with a career advisor to set goals and create a strategic career development plan. Office professionals can advise you at any stage of your educational career, but it is a good idea to begin this during your freshman year.

Self-assessment

Our Do What You Are assessment tool and “What Can I Do with a Major In...” will help you identify strengths and explore career options that fit.

Internships/Co-ops

One of the best ways to prepare for the world of work is by obtaining hands-on experience through an internship or co-op. We can assist you in finding such positions and refer your résumé to employers seeking interns and co-op students.

Post your résumé, view internships, and look for full- and part-time positions, all on the career services website.

On-campus recruiting

Our office facilitates on-campus interviews between students and dozens of employers during the fall and spring semesters.

Graduate school assistance

View graduate school guides in the Career Resource Room and receive assistance with the graduate school timeline. We can also assist you in writing your personal statement or essay.

Career fairs

Every year, we sponsor three career fairs for UE students: Career Day, Health Careers Fair, and Teacher Recruitment Day. Remember – it is never too early to attend a career fair to learn about career opportunities and network with professionals.

Mock interviews

Practice makes perfect! Sign up for a mock interview to practice your questions and answers.

Mentoring programs

Each fall, we give students the opportunity to work closely with a professional in the community or online. Mentoring programs provide you the opportunity to network, learn new work-related skills, and become more focused on your career goals.

Résumé/Cover letter help

Get assistance with your résumé or cover letter. Make an appointment to meet one-on-one with a professional who will help you present yourself in a positive manner.

Workshops

We offer workshops every semester to help prepare you with the skills you will need to land the perfect job. Opportunities include résumé-writing and interview skills.

Professional panels/Career forums

These panels feature a particular major, allowing alumni and other local professionals to share their work experiences as it relates to their major.

Company information

Learn more about companies interested in University of Evansville students and alumni by perusing our website. You will find links that detail company history, products, and employment opportunities.

O*Net OnLine

Occupational Outlook Handbook
