A new effort to help University of Vermont students land jobs got off the ground Tuesday.
UVM officially opened the doors to its Career and Experience Hub. The space inside the student center will serve as a one-stop shop to find hands-on learning experiences and career advice that could lead to employment.
The hub will be staffed with workers from eight different UVM offices, including undergraduate research, career services and service learning.
"A student might come here and access any range of opportunities that they may or may not realize are related to their career interests, then we help them see that there might be a connection and help them explore other opportunities," said Pamela Gardner, director of the UVM Career Center.
The center plans to use ID card technology to track specific interests and majors of students so they can be effectively matched with opportunities that meet their interests.
The new hub is part of a larger initiative to improve employment services on campus.
