Alumni Career Panel

Alumni are a valuable part of the UM-Flint community and are eager to give back by volunteering their time by meeting with students and having candid discussions about their educational and career paths.

An Alumni Career Panel is a great way to give students an opportunity to explore a career field. We would be happy to assist you in hosting a panel in your class. The Career Center will work directly with Alumni Relations to secure the alumni. All that you need to do is, provide a date and time. We’ll handle the rest. If you are interested in hosting a career panel, complete this form.

Interacting with Employers

The Career Center works directly with top employers to discuss their need for talent; student qualifications and skills for internships; and building university-employer relations. Please let us know if there is an employer that you would like for us to add to our network or communication list

We understand that faculty and staff are sometimes contacted directly by employers who would like for you to refer students to fill employment and internship opportunities. We encourage you to refer all such contacts to the Career Center. We are happy to assist employers with these types of requests. We will work to meet employer requests, while also adhering to the appropriate employment guidelines for equal access to employment. 

UM-Flint is a member of the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE). NACE has provided the following resource for its member institutions. Please look at the Faculty Guide to Legal and Ethical Standards in Student Hiring - your guide to interacting with employers. If you have questions about what you should and should not do, please contact us at careercenter@umflint.edu.

First Destination Survey

The Career Center sends the First Destination Survey (FDS) to graduating seniors, each graduation cycle (Summer, Fall and Winter semester). Students share information about their career fields, grad/professional schools, employers, geographic locations, salaries, etc. The collected data is presented in the Annual First Destination Report, found here.
