Welcome to careers&us! We are a community of UCSB students that is dedicated to exploring who we are as people, as students, and as future professionals. By joining our group, you will access monthly opportunities through UCSB Career Services to discover yourself in unique ways and begin the career path that is for you.
We feature a new way to ask yourself, "WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO WITH YOUR LIFE?" through an event every month!
*** HOW TO JOIN ***
STEP 1. Login via your UCSBnetID in the upper right corner, and then search for "careers&us" to return to this page.
We offer our members opportunities to reflect on their unique qualities, specifically pertaining to academics and careers. While we cannot promise you a dream job or a vacation house in Tahiti, we are committed to spreading awareness about strategies that promote self-knowledge. With greater awareness of your interests, skills, values, and personality, you can take positive steps to explore your academic and career options.
By participating in our group, we hope that you feel more confident about who you are as a student and a professional, that you can identify your unique qualities, and that you are ready to GET EXPERIENCE! Inspired by our favorite career coach who once said, "Talk to yourself before talking to employers," we promise to provide you with meaningful ways to learn about yourself BEFORE making big life decisions.
OUR EXPECTATIONS (OF YOU)
William Shakespeare is known for a wise observation: "Expectation is the root of all heartache." With this in mind, we do not expect anything of our members. We invite you to join us if you find this group to be beneficial, but there is no minimum requirement for participation. While you are a member, we simply ask that you attend the events for which you RSVP. Motivation comes from within!
"Who is eligible to become a member?"
"Why should I participate?"
"I'm more aware of my unique qualities than anyone I know. I just want to see what types of careers exist. Should I join careers&us?"
"Can I attend an event if I am not a member?"
"What happens if I RSVP for an event and I don't show?"
"Why is 'us' in this organization's name? Isn't it just MY career that I'm dealing with here??"
Interested in learning more about yourself? Want to find the major and career that is for you? Join careers&us, the UCSB campus organization dedicated to finding a new way to ask yourself, “What are you going to do with your life?” every month!
If your organization has selective membership, please describe the selection process. What is required of an individual to join the organization? This should also be described on the organization's constitution.
Upon joining as a member, a brief assessment will be emailed and is to be completed within 48 hours. Membership is open to all current students of UCSB across all academic programs (undergraduate and graduate levels). There is no minimum requirement for participation as a member.
We recommend including your regular general membership meeting day, time, and location in your profile so that prospective members can easily join your organization. You can update these fields at any time throughout the year.
