Can you benefit from career counseling? You might, and here’s why. At UC Davis, we have a career counselor that is specifically dedicated to STAFF and she understands what they want in their careers and how to help them get there. Career counseling is a one-on-one, confidential service and staff are eligible for two individual appointments per fiscal year without charge. To schedule an appointment, call Staff Development and Professional Services at 530-752-1766. Some of the most popular services provided by our career counselor are application materials review, resume writing assistance, and interview coaching.
Let’s break that down. Applications, you may think are for UC Davis positions only; however, there is more to this. Clients can work on job applications for positions anywhere, on applications for special programs that require applications (e.g., UC Management Skills Assessment Program, UC Davis Group Mentoring Program, etc.), and on applications for further education, both undergraduate and graduate levels. Resumes can always use a refresh, and the career counselor can fast track your efforts. Ready for that interview? The career counselor can help you prepare and take you through a mock interview, and if you would like, you can record it on your smart device. March is a good month to remind ourselves about our good fortunes, and that sure is the case when it comes to career counseling for staff – lucky you!
