Developing Career Ready Students

As a supervisor in Here to Career, your role is critical to helping students identify and connect long-term career goals to their work here

Intentional guidance and support positively impacts working learners, on-campus employers and the UB community. Student employment connects working learners to future opportunities, fosters working relationships and creates space for students to experience lifelong lessons about work.  

Through your guidance, mentorship and support, Here to Career can integrate working with learning, so students gain life-transformative experiences in employment. 

Watching the students grow throughout their time here is really fun to watch. Many of them start out as timid freshmen and blossom into outgoing seniors."
