The Career Exploration Center is the leading campus resource for UW-Madison undergraduates who need help exploring majors and careers. We help students focus on their interests, values, strengths, and personality to give them the tools they need to make decisions about their careers and their futures.
CEC Hours & Events
Explore Jobs & Internships!
Handshake is a new system on campus that makes it easy for UW-Madison students to sign up for career events, connect to jobs and internships, and use online resources to explore careers.
Open study is available in the CEC during regular business hours, Monday-Friday, 8:30am-4:30pm.
Please note: periodically, CEC workshops or events will close open study hours. Please call the CEC at 608-265-4497 with any questions.
Need Academic Advising?
The CEC is part of Cross-College Advising Service – an academic advising office on campus for students who are exploring their major options. Learn more about how CCAS could help you.
Is the CEC the right place for me?
The Career Exploration Center is a great place for students who are exploring majors and careers, but sometimes another office is a better place to visit for your specific question. Read more here to determine your next best step.
There are a variety of ways beyond individual appointments that students can interact with the CEC to help further their major and career exploration.
At CCAS & the CEC, we respect, value, and celebrate the diversity of all UW-Madison students. We strive to make every student feel welcome, safe, and included. By committing ourselves to supporting and advocating for students of all identities, we hope to help foster a healthy campus environment where students can explore academic interests, make decisions about majors and careers, and reach their full potential.
