  • On our Facebook page as a post.
  • On our job board which can be found in the entryway facing the UAF Bookstore on the 3rd floor of Gruening.
  • Emails--we share job opportunities with the most applicable departments/programs, which usually maintain their own kind of newsletter or job board. Make sure students check their emails!

If you or a student are seeking a job in a specific area, let us know and we'll help you find what you're looking for.

Faculty and staff are welcome to attend all of our events, and we'd love to support your students and organization with our services! For a schedule of our events, please see our Events page.

Having connections with different departments and organizations helps us achieve our goal of serving students' career-related needs, so please let us know if you have any questions, concerns, feedback or comments! 

 We'd love the opportunity to share our knowledge with students. By integrating our services with your course or student organization, we can help them in these ways:

  • Prepare for a job fair/hiring event
  • Become familiar with the job search process
  • Create and maintain current job application materials
  • Expand on a topic taught in your course

Most of our services can be transformed into presentations and workshops, and we're happy to tailor it to your specific needs. Here are some examples from the past:

And we're willing to try new things, too--fill out the UAF Career Services Presentation Request Google form to share your ideas with us and we'll reach out to you as soon as we receive it.

 UAF Career Services is applicable no matter what kind of course you teach or what your student organization focuses on, because students can never be too prepared for a job opportunity.

  • Nearly every employer requests a resume. It is best to have an updated version, or at least know how to create one.
  • With how often we receive vacancy announcements from employers, an amazing job or internship might come along with a short time frame for applications. It is in everyone's best interest to maintain an updated resume, as well as ideas for cover letters.
  • It is never too early to begin preparing for a career after college. The sooner students become familiar with the job search process and career application materials, the smoother the transition can be after graduating.
  • Dedicating time to learn about the job search process and career application materials is the same as making an investment in your future; students have nothing to lose.
  • Plenty of students work while they're still in school, and we can help with that too.
