Career Development Landscape at UW
- Though the history isn’t entirely clear, in the 60s and 70s, there seemed to be 2-3 career centers focusing on specific populations such as engineering, education, and graduate business students.
- By the mid-1980s, the centralized center served all students except graduate business students. At some point, that center also started seeing undergraduate business students but that did not last.
- By 2000, the centralized center served all undergrads. There were other centers designated to law students, MBA students, and MPA students. There were also a few departments that had a staff person who did some career development tasks as part of their role.
- In 2012, the Foster School of Business opened a center for undergraduate business students.
- In 2015, the Career Center @ Engineering was launched as a joint effort between the centralized career center and the advancement arm of the College of Engineering.
- By 2022, there were specialized career roles in several colleges and departments.
