Our mission is simple: to provide students and alumni with comprehensive resources and individual counseling tailored to help them reach their creative professional goals.
Our career counselors provide hands-on support to help prepare you for your next step. We also provide assistance in researching and pursuing fellowships, grants and contests, as well as graduate school and alternative post-graduation options.
Access to UArtsCareers, a comprehensive online system offering listings of opportunities including internships, part-time jobs, summer jobs, freelance projects & gigs, auditions, volunteer positions, and full-time career positions. Through UArtsCareers, students and alumni may also store and distribute online resumes and portfolios.
Career Development Resources
The Career Resource Library includes books on general career guidance, books and directories focused on the various artistic disciplines, as well as industry publications/periodicals. We also have a variety of handouts on job search strategies, interview techniques and career development, and links to valuable Internet career resources.
We provide assistance with résumé and cover letter writing, and coaching on interview techniques/job search skills. We have also partnered with Resumes for America to offer you a free online resume and cover letter builder. Current students should use their uarts.edu email address. If you are an alumnus/a and don't have one, you can submit a request to firstname.lastname@example.org for access.
