"I discovered an internship opportunity with the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) by checking the Announcements section on UBWorks. After meeting with my career coach to discuss improving my resume, I sent my application in and soon heard back to schedule an interview. Thanks to the Career Center and my I/O Psych program, I was well equipped to discuss my skills and applicable knowledge during my interview and I was later offered a paid summer internship in Alexandria, VA. This experience allowed me to apply the skills I learned in the classroom at a real-world job environment while continuing to develop as a working professional."
Major: Publications Design, M.A.
"When I started at UB my only expectation was to get an education, but it provided so much more. During my second year of grad school I worked at the University of Baltimore's Career and Internship Center as their Marketing and Graphic Design Graduate Assistant. Through this position I gained experience managing and designing for multiple projects at once, working with a team, developing professional materials, and making connections. My work here lead to my first full-time job as a graphic designer job at Holabird Sports in Middle River, MD, where I worked for a year."
Major: Entrepreneurship and Strategy
"The Career and Internship Center is not solely a place to stuff your resume to prepare for an interview, or a place to simply learn about a possible career path. It will only be that if that’s all you choose to see it for. I worked in the Career Center for 3 and a half years, and I realized about a year in to my work that I was in a magical, unique environment. It’s not easy to find a place in a University where the staff will see you as more than a student. The wonderful staff at the CIC are trained in empowering you to develop your professional life. They understand that to do this, they must help to empower us as people...Ideally, by the time you graduate, you should check into the Career Center multiple times to ensure that you’re utilizing the university’s resources to maximize your potential."
Major: Applied Information Technology
"UB works was instrumental during my internship search phase as I was able to find, apply to, and land a year long IT helpdesk internship with Maryland Legal Aid in Baltimore City. Through resume and cover letter reviews, mock interviews, and constantly checking in, the Career Center was very helpful with keeping me on track to achieving my goals, and for that I am grateful!"
Program: Jurisprudence/Law School
"My position working at the Career Center was really my first structured employment since having my first child in 2000! As a “non-traditional” student, I was very concerned about building a resume. The Career and Internship Center helped me build a resume and gave me a great job to put on it!"
