At UAS, we strive to connect you with people and resources who can help you achieve your career goals. This is an exciting time and there is much to learn as you launch your time at UCSB and begin to take steps toward your career.
During this first year, you’ll want to focus on maintaining your GPA to meet the pre-major requirements. We also recommend you begin to look for opportunities to build your experiences at the collegiate level; soon you won’t be able to list your high school experiences on your resume.
During Fall Quarter, we're focused on connecting our members with internship and full-time opportunities with firms from around the world. We call this time of year "fall recruiting season". We invite you to become a member and begin attending meetings and events this quarter so that as you advance in you're academics, you'll know what to expect in future years.
The best way to learn more about UAS and how to achieve in the Economics & Accounting major is to get involved with our organization immediately. You might not be looking for a summer internship right now, but you’ll want to slowly build your network and develop a plan to achieve your goals. Take advantage of our more senior members and always ask questions; you’ll learn from what others in the major are talking about too. Join us for Weekly Meetings on Wednesday nights to meet students and professionals as well as learn tips to develop your personal brand. We also host socials and networking events throughout the year.
UAS coordinates recruiting events with the Economics department’s Career Connection office to connect students with career opportunities. The Career Connection office is open Monday-Thursday from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. for drop-in hours and from 1 p.m.-2 p.m. by appointment only, during which students can have resumes critiqued, check CPA requirements or have any questions about the recruiting process answered.
