Career Services and Service-Learning

The Advising, Retention and Career Center is also home to UW-Eau Claire's Career Services and Service-Learning. This is an integral part of the guidance Blugolds receive on their path to academic success.

During the course of their degree, students participate in 30 hours of service-learning which engages them with members of the community in mutually beneficial ways. The projects that fulfill this aspect of the Blugold education apply the concepts and principles from student coursework in meaningful and interactive ways in the service of others. 

Career Services helps Blugolds with everything from creating a resume, finding on-campus employment, securing an internships, and ultimately landing that first job after gradation. With career fairs and on-campus interviewing taking place multiple times a year, you will have a great head start in finding that dream job once your degree is in hand. 

Career Services staff members are available to visit your class or organization remotely.  You can schedule a presentation here
