About the Center

Vision: The UMBC Career Center aims to empower all students and graduates to create their own success stories.

Our team of talented and dedicated professionals are here to help you explore your career options, weigh decisions, and gain experience through internships, co-ops, and research positions. We will also connect you to employers seeking to hire UMBC talent through networking events and career fairs. See: Resources for Students.

The Career Center also serves UMBC alumni as they grow in their careers or transition to new ones, and we create partnerships with local and national employers to provide outstanding talent. We collaborate with UMBC faculty and staff to provide students for internships and other positions, in addition to career planning, job search, and professional/graduate school preparatory assistance for students. See: Resources for Alumni, Resources for Employers, and Resources for Faculty/Staff.

Families, we know your student’s success is important to you, and the Career Center is here to help. Please encourage your student to connect with the Career Center. It’s never too early! See: Resources for Families.

We look forward to meeting you! Please email or call us and let us help you get started!
