Major and Career Research
In order to make a competent decision, it is crucial to do research. That’s really what Discovery! is grounded in…the importance of researched-based evidence in a decision making process. One of our favorite ways to help you research is to send you to the University Career Center! They were nice enough to explain a bit about how they can serve you…
See us now or see us later!
By Kristen Seideman, Assistant Director of University Career Center
We have this saying at the UCC that students can “see us now or see us later.” Most of the time we receive blank stares or awkward smiles after students hear this little nugget of knowledge, but if they would take a moment and think about why they are here at Texas Tech, they would realize this nugget of knowledge is pure genius!
Most students are in college with the goal of graduating and landing that dream job; however, they may be unaware of all the little steps one must take prior to landing that amazing job. A fabulous resume, awesome work experience, and amazing interviewing skills are just a few drops in the bucket of successful career searching.
University Career Center can help with all the above mentioned items. We are here to help students prepare for the working world or higher education. Whatever path you are thinking about taking, isn’t it great to know that there is an office on campus that is here to HELP you?
