The Career Influencers Network provides the opportunity to learn how to best support students in becoming career ready and achieving post-graduate success in today’s quickly evolving world of work. The UAB Career Center is focused on empowering and equipping campus partners with the tools they need to assist students with transitioning from college to career.

  • Open to all faculty, staff, and administrators
  • Three 60-90-minute sessions required
  • Receive a certificate of completion and the career readiness toolkit, which provides activities, rubrics, and templates to facilitate connections between students’ academic experiences and their career goals

What can we expect to learn in each 90-minute session?
