Individual Appointments (In-person or telephone)
Recent UMBC graduates may schedule an appointment for free up to six months following their date of graduation. After that, appointments are $30 per 45-minute session. No-shows and appointments canceled with less than 24-hours notice will be assessed the full fee. Some topics you may want to discuss during your appointment are:

  • Clarify career interests and values
  • Identify skills and strengths
  • Identify resources to research employers
  • Determine a course of action for objectives
  • Write effective letters and resumes
  • Develop a career portfolio
  • Prepare and practice for interviews
  • Learn to negotiate salary
  • Evaluate job offers
  • Navigate the graduate school application process

UMBCworks Account

UMBCworks is UMBC's online system for job seekers. Included are full-time entry-level and experienced-level positions. In addition, UMBCworks gives you access to a comprehensive calendar of Career Events on campus.

 

Recent UMBC graduates have access to UMBCworks for one year following the date of graduation. After that, alumni can request to have their UMBCworks account reactivated on a per semester basis, but are urged to schedule an appointment with a career specialist in order to review current job search strategies and to receive recommendations for effective practices of branding, networking and resource utilization. Scheduled appointments can be made by calling 410-455-2216 and a $30 fee will be incurred for the appointment. The Career Services Center at UMBC strongly advocates that job search candidates utilize a number of methods to conduct an effective job search, and not rely solely on applying for jobs online.

 

Recent alumni may also participate in On-Campus Interviews through the next following semester after graduation (Fall graduates through Spring, Spring and Summer graduates through Fall).
