'“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, UAS Alumna'
