About the CEC
The Career Exploration Center (CEC) supports undergraduate students who are exploring their major, career, and/or academic goals.
We assist student in gathering information, personal insight, and experiences that:
- are based on their interests, values, and skills
- help them explore their options
- provide direction in planning the next steps in their career journey
Handshake is a 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.
Workshops & events will be offered virtually and in-person throughout the semester. You can also schedule a remote appointment with a CEC advisor to talk about career paths, majors, and how majors and careers connect.
At 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.
