Alumni Career Resources

The UGA Career Center and UGA Alumni Association are partners in providing resources to help alumni Get Connected!

Schedule an Appointment

When you are at a crossroad, it can help to talk with your Alumni Career Counselor, Bethany Bagley.  Alumni have access to FREE career counseling! Appointments generally fit into one of these three areas, but will vary depending on your needs.

Clarity & Direction
Not sure what you want to do next? We can go over your career assessment results together and discuss your plans for the future.

Self-Marketing
Not hearing back from job applications? Maybe it’s time to have your resume critiqued or practice those interviewing skills.

Making Connections
Not sure if your networking is effective or how to reach the right person? Let’s discuss your strategy to make sure you are making the most of your contacts and resources.

Career Counseling Appointments are available Monday-Friday between 9am-3pm.

To schedule an appointment, follow these 3 steps:

1. Register with DAWGlink. Send an email to bjbagley@uga.edu with your full name, graduating class year and degree. Include your former UGA email address and a current non-UGA email
    address. Within 24 hours, you will receive an email with instructions on how to update your DAWGlink password.
