Did you Know
The Career Center can help you identify your qualities and personal preferences as it relates to majors and careers. What are your strengths? What do you value? What are your interests? What skills and abilities do you possess? What skills and abilities do you wish to develop? The better you know yourself, the better choices you will make with regard to your major and career.
Wherever you are in the career planning process, the Career Center can help. Finding a job, co-op, internship or full-time position is more than securing employment. It is a process of discovery, exploration, commitment and action. You can successfully complete this process with careful thought and reflection.
The Four-Phase Plan is our advice for students to follow during their undergraduate years at Case.
The Career Centers has many useful links to information on "what can I do with a major in..." to career shadowing programs, to help students find majors about which they enjoy and are passionate about.
The Career Center offers a range of assessment tools to help students clarify major choice, identify career goals, and define interests and skills. This is especially helpful for students who not declared or are not satisfied with their current major.
Most people think only students in engineering can gain work experience while they are in school via the co-op program. Did you know that students in the College of Arts and Science and the Weatherhead School of Management can participate in a practicum or internship for a semester!
From job searches to assistance with resume writing to mock interviews, the Career Center can help you through all phases of the job search process. This includes summer jobs, internships and interviews for jobs and graduate/professional school interviews.
In addition to our extensive workshops and events, the Career Center considers program requests from student organizations and faculty. To inquire about a program, please submit a Program Request Form to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also complete the form in person at 206 Sears Building or send it via fax to 216-368-4759.

Individual counseling is usually short-term (12 sessions or fewer) with a counselor to discuss a personal concern relating to academic difficulties, stress, relationship problems, anxiety, depression or other personal matters.
Couples counseling is offered to all students and their spouses or domestic partners. It can help enrich a relationship by resolving conflicts and improving communication.
Group counseling involves a small number of students who meet to discuss a common concern. The supportive atmosphere in group counseling can be of particular help to members who can discuss issues with others who have had similar experiences. Topics range from reducing stress through meditation, students in recovery, managing grief and loss and healthy sleep, in addition to many others.
Psychological testing may help clarify personal or academic issues and be beneficial to the counseling process. Tests are administered on an individual basis and results are discussed in the counseling sessions.
Consultation services are offered for faculty, staff and students who are trying to help another person through difficult times. A UCS staff member will meet with you in confidence to give you ideas on how to help.
Referrals are occasionally recommended to one of the numerous services available through Student Affairs and the university community. Our staff can provide information to students seeking help and to faculty or staff attempting to refer students to a helping agency. Occasionally, students will need longer term counseling and UCS staff will provide information about private referrals and university health insurance coverage.
Sometimes a student may benefit from psychiatric medications to augment the therapy process.

In the 2006-2007 academic year, more than 20 students received almost $11,000 in funding to present their research! Funding is available for the 2007-2008 year as well!
The goal of the SOURCE office is to assist and prepare students to engage in research and creative endeavors, and to guide and, where appropriate, to supplement institutional, departmental, and divisional work with this effort. All this means that the SOURCE office is here to help students learn about UR-CE (undergraduate research and creative endeavors) and opportunities, to assist faculty members in posting opportunities, assist with funding, and to facilitate the celebration of UR-CE activities.
There are numerous opportunities for research and creative projects both on and off campus. If you have an independent project in mind, discuss your idea with your faculty advisor or the SOURCE office. If you do not find what you are looking for, please contact the SOURCE office.
The important thing to remember is to get started now researching for your research position, especially if you are looking for a summer research position.

Throughout our association with the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, one of our major goals has been to increase undergraduate research opportunities on campus. A major initiative to achieve this goal is our Summer Program in Undergraduate Research (SPUR).This program consists of ten weeks of full time student research on various biomedically related projects. For these ten weeks, students gain invaluable research experience and learn what it means to be part of a team, with many individuals working toward a common goal. Mentors include faculty from the College of Arts and Sciences, School of Medicine, and the School of Engineering.
SPUR Participating Departments and Faculty
|Anesthesiology||Molecular Biology & Microbiology|
|Civil Engineering||Physiology & Biophysics|
