Success is a Journey. Let’s Start Together.

Library Mall from Bascom Hill
Our new name: SuccessWorks

L&S Career Services has transformed into SuccessWorks–your home for exploring interests, connecting with others who share your passions and preparing for success after graduation.

You don’t need to plan your next twenty years. Let’s just start with the next twenty minutes. Our new name is all about working with you as you take your next steps toward success, no matter what path you’re on, or how you define “success.”

More than a career center

We’ve re-designed with you in mind. Drop by our brand new center on the third floor of the University Book Store for advising, resume review and interview prep. Grab a free coffee in the student lounge, or get a professional headshot taken at our Linkedin photo booth (also free!). You can even visit to study or just hang out with our friendly staff.

Opening Soon: SuccessWorks Career Closet. Have an interview coming up?  Short on cash? The Career Closet will be your stop for free professional clothing and accessories. We’ll even help you pick the right styles to dress for success!

Career Communities: With You on the Path to Success

We don’t want to box you in. We know that your major doesn’t always point to a specific career path. That’s why you can join Career Communities that reflect your interests and curiosity. Each Career Community is based on a cluster of occupations where UW alumni have landed awesome jobs.

Career Communities connect you with internships and employment opportunities, plus alumni mentors, advising and support. Want to explore multiple paths? No problem. You can join multiple Career Communities to stay flexible and seize opportunities when they knock.

Not quite ready to hit the job market or write your resume? That’s just fine with us. This part is fun! Let’s have a chat about your interests and possibilities. Make an appointment or stop by during drop-in hours.
