Faculty & Staff as Partners


facultyUAB Career & Professional Development exists to engage students in the career development process of exploring career options, gaining experience in a chosen field, preparing for the job search, and succeeding in their career goals. We provide career management for all students from undergraduates to graduates to postdoctoral trainees to alumnae.

The mutual goal of both Career & Professional Development and the UAB faculty is student success. By working together, we can ensure the students receive "the best possible preparation for productive and meaningful careers and lives that benefit society."

Each of us across UAB is needed to help educate students on the realities of the work world, from the time they arrive at UAB. Let’s work to help students integrate experiences and develop career stories into a compelling reason they are the best candidate for the position being sought. Please assist us by informing students of the important activities offered by UAB Career Services and by encouraging their participation in our programs.

So, how do we collaborate to ensure students gain these skills and understand how to articulate them to potential employers / graduate schools?

Please feel free to use us as a resource, and let us know how we can be of service to you. Contact Suzanne Scott-Trammell, UAB Career and Professional Development's Executive Director, at 205.934.4324 or email her.
