UB’s comprehensive career counseling and resource center

Dedicated to empowering students as active participants in their own academic, professional, and career development.

UB’s Center for Career Development embraces the philosophy that career development is about acquiring the professional skills necessary to manage one’s career at any point along the continuum. We view our services as an integral educational component of the students’ academic program. Our services are geared toward preparing students to successfully assess themselves, research career options, acquire relevant work skills, and use effective tools as they transition to productive academic endeavors and satisfying employment.
