Campus Career Resources

 

Career Development Center

UWM's Career Development Center (CDC) offers counseling to help you identify a career that matches your interests, values and skills. In addition, the CDC provides assistance with career research, resume development and interviewing preparation. Business students (including Global Studies majors in the Global Management track) may also wish to visit the Career Services Center at the Sheldon A. Lubar School of Business.

 

International Studies 260: Introduction to International Careers

All students who are interested in an international career should consider taking International Studies 260: Introduction to International Careers, a 2-credit course offered each spring. This course allows students to investigate a wide variety of international career options by bringing in guest speakers from international business, government (e.g. State Department), global health, teaching English as a second language (ESL), international law and mediation/peacebuilding, etc.

CIE welcomes professionals who would like to inform students about their careers in an international field. If you have a contact for a speaker that you would like to pass along, please email Christine Wolf (cawolf@uwm.edu).
