How can you have a say?
Many of our student programming and events are shaped by student feedback! Make your voice heard by letting us know what you want to see in career events and career-related student programs and services.
Join the Student Career Advisory Council.
The Student Advisory Council is fairly new program that is run by and comprised of students of all different types of majors and programs at UNO. Students can join via self-nomination or by a fellow student, staff, or faculty nomination.
Fill out post-event surveys.
We know that filling out those post-event surveys are often the last thing on your mind, but they do help when we plan future events, like our All Majors Career & Internship Fair and Success Series Workshops. We want these events to be valuable to the student experience and for your careers after university, so share your thoughts through our post-event surveys!
