Find Purpose

Some students come to college knowing exactly what they want to do and never waver.  Others have virtually no idea what they want to do because everything (or nothing!) seems to interest them.  Many have an initial plan in mind but decide they want to look around and explore other options as they move through college.

All of these scenarios are normal!

Our hope is that all Huskies figure out a path that aligns with their interests, values, and talents.  PathwayU is a great place to start.  Take 4 assessments to gain insights on your interests, values, personality, and workplace preferences.  Then, explore UW majors, career paths, and internships that align with your unique gifts and purpose.   All in one platform!

UW Alumni Career Outcomes

The information below is based on data collected from Huskies up to 7 months following graduation.  Also known as Next Destination, the data provide a snapshot of UW-Seattle undergraduates’ success following degree completion.  This information is collected by the Career & Internship Center and other campus partners in accordance with national standards.  Response rate for 17-18 was 24% and for 18-19 it was 50%.  We are working hard to increase response rates so we can provide a robust picture of UW student outcomes.
