Bearcat Promise Career Studio

Bearcat Career Studio front doors

The Bearcat Promise Career Studio is a space for students to explore careers and plan for life after college. Whether you’re writing your first resume or interviewing for your first job, we’re here to help! All students are welcome.

The Bearcat Promise Studio is committed to providing all UC students with continued service during this unprecedented time as our campus community responds to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak. Professional career coaches are available for virtual appointments throughout the summer semester, and online resources are also available.
