CLAS Career Advising
The AAC is fortunate to have Andie Cochran, UF Assistant Director for Career and Industry Engagement in our office part-time. Below is a little more from Andie:
Who am I?
As a former Liberal Arts and Sciences undergrad, I was able to translate my degree in Psychology into a ten year career that allowed me to use a variety of transferrable skills. As a part of the hospitality and travel industry, my career at Walt Disney World allowed me to gain a wealth of knowledge about what it is like to work in many different job functions. I bring this knowledge to my role at the UF Career Resource Center (CRC) with the hope to share it with students in order to guide and motivate their career exploration. I am excited to be an extension of the CRC to the students of CLAS. Along with the wonderful staff and students of the CRC, there is a wide variety of options to explore career possibilities and assistance with that journey.
What can I help you with?
Some of the options the CRC offers to students eager to start their career exploration are career planning appointments. These one on one sessions allow the students to talk about any topic from helping them explore career paths and figuring out what they want to do to mock interviews to how to get started with the job search. Students eager to continue their education at graduate or professional schools can get assistance with personal statements, CVs and exploring which schools or programs will be right fit for them. Students can also attend workshops or info sessions hosted by CRC staff and Employers who recruit at UF.
Location and Hours
I look forward to meeting with students both at the CRC (Reitz Union) and in the AAC (Farrior Hall).
Career Planning appointment hours for Fall 2017 ( schedule an appointment).
Schedule a 30-minute session to talk to a career planner about anything related to your career path. Whether it’s finding an internship, developing a resume, or just figuring out what’s next, a Career Planning Appointment is a great way to get started.
Do you have an idea for me?
I also invite you to communicate with me about events or services you would like to see from the Career Resource center, or anything I can do to help bring career development to you. Please email me with your suggestions and ideas of ways I can help you be successful.
I look forward to seeing you soon at a career planning appointment or drop in hours. Below are a few links to help you get started with your career exploration:
