First Generation Students

If you are one of the first to attend college in your family, you have reason to be proud.  Now that you are here, we want to make sure you can make the most of your experience at UW. Our coaches at the Career and Internship Center are versed in helping orient you towards the many resources and opportunities available to you as a Husky, especially when it comes to out of classroom experiences like research, internships, campus groups and events, and experiential learning.  Your path to college is filled with experiences that have given you marketable skills. We want to help you articulate those experiences in a way that can help you find work that matches up to your unique skills and interests. If you want to get started, schedule an appointment with one of our coaches, come to a drop-in, or attend one of our many events.
