On Wednesday, July 1, Career Services will unveil its new name, the Center for Career Development.
Nationally, the field of career services is experiencing a transformation. Many universities are dropping “services” from their offices’ title because the word indicates it is a place of transactions. By using the word “development,” the center seeks to communicate to students that the center helps them grow professionally while at UT.
Moving to the Alan and Wendy Wilson Career Development Suite in the new Student Union provides a great opportunity to make this transition. The department is planning several service delivery changes for the fall semester to increase accessibility to students and will launch a rebranding campaign to generate awareness.
