Career Counseling

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. Students and alumni can go online to easily schedule an appointment to meet with us.

UArtsCareers Portal

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 store and distribute online resumes and portfolios. The system is also used to manage the academic internship program.

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.

Resume Building

We provide assistance with résumé and cover letter writing, and coaching on interview techniques/job search skills. We have also partnered with Resume Companion to offer a free online resume and cover letter builder. The site requires registration using a uarts.edu email address. If you are an alumnus/a and don't have one, you can submit a request to alumni@uarts.edu.

Workshops & Events

We hold annual career fairs and periodic professional development workshops and special events.
