UGA graduates have access to the Career Center’s resources, programs, and services for life as a UGA alumni! Continue to utilize this moving forward.

Did You Know?

Although drop-in hours will end on April 25th, the Career Center is open all summer.

Schedule an appointment with your Career Consultant, Brittany Smith, in-person or via phone through your Handshake account, or by calling the Career Center front desk at (706) 542-3375. Summer is a great time to get a head start on graduate school applications (get those personal statements going!), or get a jump on your 2018-19 internship and job search. We can help!

5. Bulldog Basics - Volunteers Needed

Do you have experience or an interest in marketing? Do you enjoy helping others, especially your fellow students? If so, we are looking for individuals to volunteer with Bulldog Basics! Bulldog Basics is a student-run initiative to provide students in need with hygiene and personal care items. We currently run out of the first and third floor unisex bathrooms of Dawson Hall.

Our marketing volunteer will be involved with promoting Bulldog Basics via social media and other pathways to UGA and the Athens community as a whole. If marketing isn’t your thing, we have plenty of other opportunities to volunteer and the time commitment would be less than an hour a week.

Please email bulldogbasics@uga.edu if interested.
