Virtual Student Services

UB Career Development recognizes the challenges of being away from campus and out of your normal routine. Despite being remote, we are here to support you. We are still providing many of our regular services, including career coaching appointments, virtually. We miss talking with you in-person each day and wish you good health and success in the weeks ahead.
