The UW-Madison School of Education’s Career Center has moved and is now located in the lower level of the Education Building on Bascom Hill.
The Career Center, which was previously located in the lower level of the Educational Sciences building, is dedicated to assisting students and alumni from across the School’s 10 academic departments in developing their career and professional identity.
The move will bring the Career Center closer to the School’s Education Academic Services office, which is also housed in the Education Building. This will allow the two units to better collaborate and serve students.
The Career Center’s receptionist office is now located in L107 of the Education Building.
The Career Center will be hosting two open house events next month.
The first event, targeted to faculty and staff, will run from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 3. Exhibits, displays and handouts will focus on how the Career Center provides life-long career assistance to students in, and alumni from, the various School of Education programs. The Career Center will also highlight ways in which it can help each unit’s students reach their career goals and spotlight resources that are available for students and faculty. Appetizers and beverages will be served.
The Career Center’s open house for students is scheduled for Wednesday, Feb. 24, from 12:30 to 5:30 p.m. This event will include information stations highlighting job search preparation workshops and other career events. This open house will also include snacks, beverages and giveaways.
The Career Center’s approach to career development is educational. The center facilitates candidate and employer interaction, with the career consultants coaching students and alumni to provide them with the fundamentals of how to begin and advance their careers. This can be accomplished through individual appointments, events and an array of online resources hosted on the Career Center’s website.
The Career Center also is dedicated to partnering with employers and community members in an effort to support student and alumni success.
