Discover Your Powerful Future
Nothing gives us more pride at USCB than the success achieved by our graduates. Whether it's gaining admission to an Ivy League graduate program, landing a job in The White House, going to a top law school, working at a world-class resort, or starting at a Fortune 500 company, we're focused on helping our students and graduates achieve the highest levels of success, however they define it.
Career services at USCB doesn't start when you're a senior. We'll engage you beginning your first year to map out a career path best suited to your goals in life. And along the way, we'll provide a rich abundance of services and programs focused on one thing—your success.
We'll help you define your career goals and determine which major is the best fit for you to achieve those goals, and work with you to identify and land internships that will get you the experience you'll need.
Career Planning Events
Each year we coordinate activities and events focused on preparing you for life after graduation, including workshops and fun events like Career & Financial Well-being Day, and virtual and on-campus career events.
Personalized Support and Services
From helping you write an effective resume and cover letter, to networking events, to workshops on professionalism and business etiquette, to mock interviews, to guiding you through graduate school possibilities, we'll be with you every step of the way.
And we're always here to answer questions. Our offices are open 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. And you can contact Career Services at (843) 208-8263 or email@example.com.
