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. We feature a new way to ask yourself, "WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO WITH YOUR LIFE?" through monthly meetups, email newsletters, and Facebook posts.

*** WHY YOU SHOULD JOIN ***

In a recent Gallup poll of 80,000 U.S. workers, only 32% identified themselves as "engaged" in their jobs, all while full-time employees invest an average of 47 hours at work EVERY week.  We want Gauchos to be engaged and fulfilled contributors, so we promise to help you learn about yourself BEFORE making big life decisions about things like your major or your career.   Knowing what you want in life is always the first step.

OUR VALUES

  • We believe that there is no single "right" way to plan for the future or evaluate the efforts we make in life.  Self-knowledge is a key skill for success in our ever-changing 21st century, and it is our mission to help student members move forward through sustained self-reflection. 
  • We reject the question, "What are you going to do with your life?" when imagining our future careers.  Instead, we ask a specific & constructive question every month, and provide activities that help answer it. 
  • We value openness, honest reflection, and confidentiality within our community.  Reflect and respect!
  • We are college students and human beings, which means we like to PLAY!  Many of our events will involve games or activities that get us thinking and having fun at the same time.  When we're lucky, we even get food!

THE FINE PRINT

careers&us is open to membership from all current undergraduate and graduate UCSB students.  By joining careers&us or attending any careers&us meetups, I understand that the focus is to support my self-awareness for improved major and career exploration, and that it will be my responsibility to research actual majors and careers further.  I understand that if I am looking to do specific research on majors and careers, it is best to start with the career planning section of the Career Services website.  Most importantly, I agree to be respectful of other group members and keep information shared at meetups confidential. I understand that all photos/videos taken at careers&us meetups are considered property of careers&us and can be used for promotional purposes only.
