Career Services

To help you achieve your personal and professional goals, the U of M offers seven specialized career centers, each tailored to serve undergraduate students on a specific career path. Stop by the Pre-Health Student Resource Center to develop your pre-med plan or get connected at the University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital. Swing by the Undergraduate Business Career Center for an on-campus interview with Target or 3M. Our career advisors can help you:

  • Explore majors and choose one. They do this via individual assistance, personality and interest tests, classes, and resource rooms full of information you can browse.
  • Connect your major to potential careers. You’re likely to find options that you didn’t know were available.
  • Search for internships and jobs. They’ll teach you effective job-search strategies, resume writing, and interviewing skills.
  • Decide if you want to attend grad school and help you apply.
  • Attend the University of Minnesota Job and Internship Fair, featuring hundreds of employers from across Minnesota and the world.

Alumni Networks

When you graduate from the U of M, you’ll join a legacy of excellence and a 450,000+ strong alumni network that is working, volunteering, and innovating across the world. 

U of M students, faculty, and alumni have founded approximately 19,000 companies worldwide, employing 1.1 million people. What do the Wall Street Journal’s mobile news editor, and NASA’s first female flight director have in common? They’re Golden Gophers. How about former Vice Presidents Hubert H. Humphrey and Walter Mondale, and the former press secretary for President Barack Obama? Golden Gophers. In fact, a recent alumni survey estimated that one of every 14 Minnesota alumni has served in elected office. The Oval Office is calling you!
