Alumni Career Coaching

The University of Georgia values its alumni by offering free career coaching assistance through the Alumni Career Services office. Finding a great career can be challenging at times, which is why we offer robust support to ensure that you can always reach your goals. Whether you would like to change careers, earn a promotion, go back to school, discover a new path, or get your dream job, we can help you! Our appointments are offered in-person (UGA’s Athens Campus), and via Skype or phone.
 “What can we talk about in an appointment?”  

Types of appointments: We offer appointments that range from career exploration, career assessments, job search strategies, resumes, cover letters, personal statements, preparing for graduate and professional schools, career transitions, handling unemployment, LinkedIn, networking, and more!  

How to prepare for your first appointment: Once you have scheduled your appointment on Handshake you can send your career coach any materials that you would like them to have during the appointment, as well as highlight any specific questions or goals you would like to focus on.
