The Career Services Office is here to help students figure out their next steps. We work with all students from freshman to graduates. We're also here to support faculty and staff in helping students by providing resources that address basic career development topics. Each college has an assigned Career Counselor to act as a liaison to you and your students.

Classroom Presentations

Need a presenter to cover your class time or you'd just like a speaker for a few minutes? Career Services staff are available to speak on a variety of career related topics. Some previous topics that we have presented on include Are you Career Ready?, Articulating Your Core Competencies, Targeted Resume Writing, Benchmarking Salaries and Online Career Resources.

Refer a student or employer

Please refer students for assistance with their job or internship search, major and career exploration, and all things related to helping them find success after graduation.

Part of our commitment to students is to connect and help them to build relationships with employers. We are open to recommendations from faculty and staff regarding employers you’d like us to connect with.

Please contact Career Services careerservices@umsl.edu or (314) 516-5111 to make an employer referral.

Share Student Outcomes

Career Services gathers information on undergraduate student's post-graduate plans so that we can provide UM-System and MDHE outcomes data in compliance with the university's sixth funding measure. 

We can report both surveyed data and knowledge data so we could use your help!

If you have students’ plans to report, please let us know! You must be logged into your UMSL Google account in order to access the form. 

Questions? Call (314) 516-5111 and ask to speak with Teresa Balestreri or Emily Rapko McEneny.
