Career Success Certificate Requirements
Welcome! The Career Success Certificate program is designed to provide the skills necessary to find a job/internship/career path that suits you well.
You may complete the eight sections in any order. The only time constraint is to complete all requirements within one academic year (defined as Summer through Spring Quarter). Keep track of your progress with the CSC Summary Worksheet and the CSC Completion Packet.
In addition, you'll have an opportunity to meet in-person with a UW Career Counselor each quarter to discuss your CSC progress and address any questions or challenges you maybe be experiencing.
And, of course, you will receive a personalized CS Certificate upon satisfactory completion of all CSC requirements!
