September 21 Message

The University Career Center is here for you on your career journey. Next stop: the Fall Career & Internship Fair!

Dear Terps,

It’s never too early or too late to focus on career preparation while on your journey of discovery here at Maryland. I hope that you plan to stop by the Fall Career & Internship Fair next week at the STAMP to learn more about all of the opportunities and career possibilities that await you. There’s even a virtual option taking place this Friday if you can’t make the Fair next week. 

Our University Career Center staff are here for you. If you know what comes next for you, or if you’re still unsure, they can help you explore your interests and navigate your career path. Make sure to take advantage of their services while you’re here.

Remember, you’ve got this, Terps, and we’ve got you.
