UC’s Career Development Center

University Pavilion.

The Career Development Center (CDC) is a crucial resource for graduate students. Regardless of your area of study, CDC can help you at every stage of the job search.

Recruit a ‘Cat is the 24/7 Job Source for UC Students that you can access using your 6+2 username and UC password. This will give you access to over a 1,000 active job listings and allow you to view employers’ profiles. Grad students may access the database even after graduation.

CDC provides extensive interview help through live mock interviews that help students practice articulating relevant experience and answering typical interview questions. CDC also offers InterviewStream, an interactive online program that allows students unlimited virtual interview practice that career coaches will review at students' request.   

CDC offers walk-in critiques and online resources for resumés, curriculum vitae and cover letters.

Visit Career Resources @ CDC on the ground floor of University Pavilion, or access additional online resources, including salary and cost of living comparisons, resources for international students and relocation information.

Periodically, the Graduate School arranges for the CDC to give workshops specifically for our graduate students. Stay tuned to GradCURRENTS for announcements about upcoming CDC workshops and events.

To meet with a Career Coach (located in the CDC offices on the 100 level of University Pavilion), call 556-3471.
