Career Communities

It doesn’t matter your major or your background. Find a community (or two) that fits you. There’s no limit to how many communities you can join + you can change your mind at any time.

This is how, together, we discover what you love to do. 💙

Why join a Career Community

We know figuring out what you want to do with your life can be overwhelming. So we’ve created a less overwhelming way to design what’s next for you.

In Career Communities, you’ll get:

  • A community designed by you—Be personally led by your Career Community Guide, supported by a network of like-minded community members, UB alumni and mentors sharing advice, inspiration, motivation and ideas for your career journey.
  • Exclusive invitations to events, job + internship opportunities—Career community only events and slack channels to connect with UB alumni and employers with the next best job + internship opportunities.
  • Career + life design tools for every step of the way—A toolkit to help students (like you!), including what’s trending in the job market, blogs, videos, articles, podcasts and recommendations on what to try so you can easily discover how your major can lead to more opportunities.
