Calling new transfer students!  New course: Career Accelerator for Transfer Students!

ARTSCI 305, 2 credits (C/NC)

Are you a transfer student eager to make the best use of your time at UW? Do you wonder how you’ll turn your UW degree into a meaningful career? 

In this 2-credit class you will hit the ground running. Through career-development tools, individualized projects, hands-on workshops and a supportive community of peers and mentors, this class will better prepare you to adapt to and thrive at the UW as you prepare to enter an ever-changing 21st-century job market. 

The time requirement for this class is equivalent to a regular 2-credit course;  instead of in-class lecture you will spend more time building your networks and "story toolkit" which you will put to immediate use in your LinkedIn profile, resumes, cover letter samples, informational and mock interviews, and more.
