UC Davis Today: Preparing the leaders of tomorrow
Preparing the leaders of tomorrow
In a challenging job market, UC Davis offers resources to help students bridge the gap between campus life and the career world.
The Internship and Career Center hosts four major career fairs a year and advises students on internships, career planning, employment searches, resumes and interview tips. Each year, more than 5,000 students participate in internships with businesses, schools, government and organizations like the California Raptor Center.
The ICC’s Community Service Resource Center connects the campus community, including many students seeking meaningful career experience, to volunteer opportunities and emphasizes the importance of service through action. In 2010-11, students, staff and faculty engaged in more than 716,000 community service hours. As a result, UC Davis was named to the 2012 U.S. President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll.
