Jobs, internships, graduate school, professional school . . . for a University of Michigan undergraduate, the possibilities are endless. A Michigan degree opens many doors, and for graduating students, the options may be overwhelming. U-M has multiple resources to help them navigate the next steps in their career.
Trained advisors can help students navigate the decision-making process.

It provides career counseling and advising, career information, pre-professional services, graduate school information, job and internship information, and educational programs, workshops, and classes.
