Refer a Student/Alumni for Services
To make good referrals, it is important to understand the nature of the services provided in Career Services.
- Refer a student or alumni to us for individual career counseling to discuss career options, employment preparation session, or to get information about our Career Planning class.
- Career Services can help students in all stages of the career planning and decision-making process. However, the assistance provided by career counselors is different from that provided by academic advisors.
- Career counselors can help a student choose among educational and career options. Such career decisions may involve self-assessment activities and identifying resources that are useful in the decision-making process.
- Career counselors are likely to be useful in helping the student look at the big picture of his/her career, while an academic advisor would probably be more effective in helping the student select specific courses to meet academic requirements.
- You may refer a student who has needs for individual career counseling. Students may stop by or contact Career Services to schedule an individual counseling appointment.

Job postings are listed on the Career Services website. The off-campus job opportunities listed on our website are both part-time and full-time, and they range from jobs not requiring a degree to jobs requiring advanced degrees with experience.

Employers attend Career Fairs to recruit candidates for full-time, part-time, and co-op positions. These career fairs are a perfect way for UM-Dearborn students to start their job campaigns.
