Alumni Career Counseling

As a UW alum, you have access to a variety of resources and services to help you reach your long-term career goals.

One service available to you is the opportunity to meet with a career counselor.  Recent UW graduates (within 12 months of receiving a degree) are eligible for free 30-minute sessions.  UW alumni who graduated more than a year ago are eligible for 60 minute appointments with one of The Career Center's professionally-trained senior counselors for $60. Learn about our counseling team by visiting our About Us page.

A maximum of three Career Counseling appointments (usually lasting about 50-60 minutes) are FREE to UW Alumni who are veterans, or for UW Alumni who are currently serving on active duty or serving in a reserve component in the United States military.
