Comments from UAB Students

We are confident that UAB has the best and brightest talent. We are very fortunate to work with these undergraduates, graduate students, and postdocs as they Explore, Experience, Prepare, and Succeed. Here are a few things our students have to stay about UAB Career & Professional Development:

  • "Jami is wonderful and I recommend her to everyone I encounter at UAB that expresses a need for career guidance. With her help and suggestions, my CV looks much more professional and I'm actually happy with it!"
  • "Rowland is knowledgeable, has real life experience, and has my best interests at heart. I trust him. He does excellent work, and I'm grateful for the valuable input he offers."
  • "Joy Jones was a tremendous aid in sterne library 20100910 1312020431preparing me for my scholarship interview. She not only asked me questions, but helped me work through solid answers to give. She asked the tough questions, but I did not lose confidence because of her assistance and support throughout our meeting. I will certainly schedule an appointment with her again."
  • "The staff members are very polite, professional, and competent in their area of expertise. I often recommend them to my classmates who need assistance with resumes, interviews, etc."
  • "I am very grateful to the internship coordinator, Mr Yancey, for his continuous support in searching, starting and finishing my internship. He has been extremely helpful in each step."
  • "Thank you so much for your help - you guys are awesome."
  • "Not only helpful but a very personable, caring individual."
  • "I am a biomedical postdoctoral fellow trying to transition into a non-research career. When I scheduled my appointment with Jami I knew the types of science positions I was interested in pursuing, but not how to identify job opportunities within those areas or how to target my CV and cover letter for specific careers. Jami was able to provide me with application information on my jobs of interest and helped me devise a career strategy, that has greatly motivated and energized me. I am excited to work with Jami more in the future."
  • "Very useful, helpful, and firendly."
  • "Melissa was honest and very helpful. I left the meeting feeling very prepared for my upcoming interview."
  • "Ms. Trammell gave me very positive feedback on my resume and interview skills. I really appreciated her feedback and time in helping me to foster my professional skills."
