Fall Hours & Classroom Requests

The MU Career Center is open 9:00 AM-4:00 PM each weekday. Students can drop-in during those hours or make an appointment to speak with a Career Specialist. We are available to help students in-person or online via Zoom. Just visit our Connect with Us web page for more details! 

We love providing information to students about important career topics, both in and outside of the MU Career Center. We can engage with your class or group by conducting a presentation or helping your students complete an assignment. Topics include CliftonStrengths and Focus 2 assessments, resume/cover letter writing, interviewing, online image, and more.
For more information, please review the Request for Classes and Groups page for recommendations. Not sure what might be best for your students?  The MU Career Center has a variety of resources and ideas on Mizzou Career Tools to help you integrate career-related information and activities. Please email to ask questions or set up a consultation. We look forward to working with you!
Website Improvements

The MU Career Center website was reorganized this summer and you'll find more options on the main menu!  First, you'll see a new experiential learning section with links to high-impact practices. Please encourage students to explore this information and the ways they get involved with hands-on learning opportunities across campus.

We also created a new section with resources and definitions of career readiness. We encourage you to skim the Faculty & Staff Career Readiness page which features our recommendations for facilitating students' learning and growth in these core competencies.   

Working Towards Connection

Working on campus is an opportunity for students to interact with fellow students, add professional staff and faculty to their support network as managers and mentors, and gain valuable skills for career readiness. As you interact with students who express a lack of social connection or need financial support, consider encouraging student employment.

Many students work a manageable 6 to 12 hours a week to get connected to campus and gain skills, with the opportunity to work 20 to 28 hours depending on the position and student considerations. This welcome video for student employees provides a great overview of the types of jobs Mizzou has to offer students and an opportunity to hear from students about their experiences: Student Employee Welcome Video 

Here are three things you can do to assist students in getting connected to student employment. 

  1. Encourage enrolling in the non-credited, opt-in course, Navigating Student Employment at Mizzou for tips and resources. 
  2. Introduce Handshake ( to search for job opportunities. 
  3. Promote your job opportunities so students know what possibilities exist at MU. Connect with your HR/Fiscal Officer for your department if you are interested in hiring a student to help you get started!  

Reminders for current supervisors: 

  • New student employees must complete New Employee Registration prior to beginning work. Please connect with your HR/Fiscal Officer in your department to get started with onboarding students. 
  • Federal Work Study student employees should not begin work prior to the first day of classes
  • All student employees will be required to complete Compliance Training available in Percipio. An email communication from UM System will be sent August 15th with further details.
