“Our mission at the University of Washington (UW) Career & Internship Center is to support each student in connecting their education to a fulfilling career. We want our students to make their own unique marks on the world. Given the diverse educational and occupational paths our students pursue and the relatively small size of our team, providing individualized career support for a student body as large as the UW’s becomes a grand challenge,” says Susan Terry, Executive Director of the Career & Internship Center. “With uConnect, we are able to empower students with self-directed customized career support, significantly advancing our ability to support the unique needs of each student. Since launching our uConnect platform nearly three years ago, we have been consistently impressed by the amount of direct engagement with the platform.”
Nearly 80,000 unique visitors explored the UW’s uConnect platform in the 2017-2018 academic year alone, clear evidence that what the Career & Internship Center’s team has created is resonating throughout the UW’s large and diverse community.
In addition to using uConnect to directly support and empower students, the UW team also utilizes the space as a hub to engage and inform the many employers who recruit UW students each year. Faculty, advisers, and campus departments can also find dedicated information and resources on the Career & Internship Center’s robust and comprehensive career platform.
