Dynamic, customized, integrative web platform to support students' career-readiness
Career & Internship Center
Nationally, 85% of incoming freshmen indicate that “being able to get a better job” is “very important” in their decision to go to college. Preparing UW Seattle’s 46,284 students to be career-ready is an important and substantial undertaking that requires the involvement and collaboration of different stakeholders both inside and outside the university. Furthermore, to ensure that students of different backgrounds, academic interests, and learning styles have equitable access to career preparation, critical resources should be provided in a variety of media and available online 24/7. In this proposal, we’re asking the Student Tech Fee Committee to fund access to a dynamic, customized career development web platform (at careers.uw.edu) that integrates relevant information from academics, co-curriculars, alumni, employers, and labor market specialists.
