Canvas Module: Jobs, Internships & How to Get Them

Students don’t even need to take a step into SuccessWorks to get their career planning off on the right foot. The brand new Canvas module Jobs, Internships & How to Get Them is an interactive, step-by-step guide that helps students explore their career interests, discover how to build skills, experiences and valuable connections while at UW-Madison, and reflect on the steps they can take now to get the jobs and internships they want.

The module even includes a quick interactive quiz to let students know how their interests and strengths match with different career possibilities. Learn more and get started.

In-Person & Virtual Fall Programs

SuccessWorks learned a lot in the past year and a half; some programs work great virtually, while others serve students best when offered in-person. The SuccessWorks Fall 2021 program lineup includes a mix of in-person and virtual programs for students of any major or career interest, including:

  • Career Fairs and Fair prep events
  • Networking opportunities to connect with and learn from alumni professionals, based either on major or career area
  • Mock interviews and virtual visits to employers
  • Set-your-own-pace virtual workshops and services to help students with resumes, cover letters, and more.
