Are you trying to decide on a college major or graduate education, considering a new career, or maybe need help conducting a successful job search? If so, the career counselors at the MU Career Center will be able to help you.
The MU Career Center provides a full range of counseling services for MU students, alumni, faculty members and community members.
Counselors-in-training are graduate students who are receiving systematic supervision to provide individual counseling on a wide range of career, academic, and social issues. Career issues may be clients’ initial concern, but academic and personal issues may emerge in counseling and can be discussed and explored as well.
Counseling services are available during the fall and spring semesters; during summer and winter breaks, please call (573) 882-6801, email CareerCounseling@missouri.edu, or visit the MU Career Center for assistance.
