“I would highly recommend students and alumni visit Career Services. Dare I say, scheduling an appointment with Career Services should be a part of the academic curriculum and a requirement prior to graduating from UAS! I learned to highlight my skills in a detailed and specific manner which, have in turn, made me more competitive among other qualified candidates.”

-Marisela Velazquez, BA-Social Science/Psychology, 2006

"UAS Career Services helped me land a job right out the gate from graduating. I had been working with Career Services on polishing up my resume by putting in the jobs I had done during my time in school, which helped me immensely. My current job even hired me prior to my graduation date because of the skills I was able to demonstrate and land that interview. Even with difficult government hiring processes, UAS Career Services has the experience to work with HR’s criteria. Not only that, but they will help you in digging around for more resources about a job you may be interested in. It helps, especially with how small Southeast Alaska is."

"I fervently encourage students and alumni to take advantage of UAS Career Services. With the assistance I received from Career Services, I was able to transform my application materials from a mediocre mishmash into a masterpiece and, as a result, I landed my dream job. I’m certain I would not have this amazing career opportunity without the guidance and support I received from Career Services. Deb shepherded me through the entire process, from resume/cover letter creation to interview prep and post-interview etiquette; she always provided me with honest, objective feedback and she kept me on track and positive when I was having moments of self-doubt. I strongly urge students to utilize UAS Career Services—it is an invaluable resource!"

-Jill Smith, BBA-Accounting, 2018
