Career Services Volunteer

Career Services volunteers commit to helping students through programs and activities that bring career-focused individuals together for community, conversation and connection. Alumni mentors provide valuable insight and prepare students for a successful future by sharing their professional and personal experiences and expertise. The following are ways to get involved:

  • Hands-On Experiences - Help students apply classroom theory in the real world to gain practical work experience through internships or allow students to job shadow.

  • Information Sessions and Workshops - Provide the opportunity for students and faculty to learn more about the employer and the company culture or host a resume, interviewing or networking workshop. 

  • Mock Interviews - Each semester Career Services hosts a week for students to role-play professional interviews with employers. By participating you will have the chance to see upcoming talent, introduce your company to UCM students and educate students on what you look for in top candidates.

  • Virtual Employer Chats - Can't make a connection in person? Don't worry! Alumni and student conversations and interviews can happen virtually via Zoom, Skype and a variety of other options.

If you have employment opportunities (part time, internship, contract or full time) to share with UCM students and alumni, please create an employer account through Handshake, UCM Career Services' online recruiting system. This web-based product allows employers to access and update company information, manage/view on-campus interview schedules, register for events, request an information session and post job vacancies. 

For help with your Handshake account or for more information on how to connect with UCM students for career opportunities, contact the Career Services Center by email at recruiter@ucmo.edu or by phone at 660-543-4985.
