Students

UMBC's Career Month offers an opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students to "get connected to the rest of the world" and "explore their professional options" through presentations, workshops and one-on-one mentoring with alumni and employers.

Now more than ever, it is important for UMBC students to explore their career options as early as freshman and sophomore years. Each event has the potential to speak to the needs of any student, regardless of academic major. We encourage all students to take your career planning process to the next level – from undecided majors to PhD candidates, there is something for you!

Attend Career Month events for your chance to earn travel prizes!

Unless otherwise indicated, all events are for all undergraduate and graduate students.
