As a graduate of UC, you have the same access to resources and programs of the CCD as our current students. You are welcome to attend our career fairs and seminars, and we encourage you to utilize Handshake, our online job board. Browse the links on the left for more information.
It can be difficult to find resources geared toward career changers. There is a plethora of career resources available for new graduates, but not as much for those in mid-career. The CCD staff is experienced in coaching adult students, and we encourage you to make an appointment if you are planning on making a career move. If you do not live in the Charleston area, no problem! The CCD can arrange a videoconference or conference call with you.
Our alumni frequently return to UC to serve as mentors or speak to classes. Our most valued mentors are alumni because they can relate to current UC students better than anyone. Several programs pair students with professional mentors, so we are always searching for more people who are interested in sharing their time and knowledge with students.
The CCD also works with faculty members to find guest speakers. In accordance with our Professional Preparation initiatives, we give students the opportunity to interact with professionals from their respective fields of study as often as possible.
If you are interested in being a mentor or guest speaker, please contact Travis Kahle, Director of the CCD, today!
As alum with professional work experience, you may be in a position that requires you to recruit and hire new employees. Remember the CCD when it comes time to post a new job. We can put the job on our Handshake job posting system at no cost to you. We can also work with faculty members to identify viable candidates for your organization. Remember that current students and alumni have access to Handshake, so even if your job posting requires work experience, the CCD can still help you identify candidates.
