At UB Career Conversations, students network with alumni from all over the world without leaving campus.
International students can take advantage of career counseling services available university-wide, or within their respective school or department.
The best time to get in touch with our Career Services office is during your first semester here. You can meet with a career counselor about your goals, explore a wealth of career resources in the Career Services library, learn about internships, and sign up for seminars and workshops that will help you get a job or get into graduate school.
"The Career Services department at UB has the best career advisors. From my internships with the Buffalo Bills and Microsoft, they taught me about professionalism and helped pave my current path as a sales representative at Google."

Buffalo native Jahmil Campbell, BSEE '07 MSEE '09 enrolled at UB because he was impressed with its facilities and resources. Now a vehicle control design engineer at General Electric Transportation in Erie, Pa., he loves the diversity he encounters at GE, from its projects and technologies to its people.
UB has a lot of cachet in the engineering field for research and technology, he says. The research he did at UB's Energy Systems Institute (ESI) taught him critical professional skills like project ownership and time management, and bridged the gap between theory and application. In fact, he says that working with electrical engineering professor and ESI Director Jennifer Zirnheld changed his life.
