Parents and Visitors

At the University of Evansville, we are committed to helping your child discover and achieve their career goals – whether that means attending graduate school or entering the professional workforce.

Here are a few of the ways you can get involved with what's happening in UE's Center for Career Development.

  • Encourage your student: Programs like UE Connect or Handshake are excellent tools for connecting your student to employers and to the 28,000 UE alumni around the world. Neither can work to their benefit unless they sign up – so please, take a moment to encourage your son or daughter to sign up for UE Connect and Handshake.
  • Know what should be happening: Among the many resources you can find in our NextStep publication is a checklist laying out the steps your student should take each year of their UE experience to put them in the best position to begin their career after graduation. We encourage parents to also be familiar with that checklist, which can be found here.
  • Join our professional network: You can serve as a volunteer career advisor for UE students and graduates in your field, offering guidance, networking, job search advice, and professional information.
  • Parent referral process: If you or your organization have potential internship, co-op, or full-time job opportunities, we would love to hear from you. Please click the link and submit your opportunity.

We invite you to explore our website to learn more about our mission and the services we provide our students, employers, alumni, faculty and staff. Parents can be very helpful in encouraging and supporting their sons and daughters during their major and career exploration process. Therefore, we have provided you with some additional insights and information regarding how you may help your student major in success. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us!
