Help with Your Job Search

UMUC's career counselors can help you develop a job search strategy. We can direct you to industry-specific job websites and help you research salary information and companies.

If you're looking for a federal job, we can help you understand the federal hiring process and give you tips on optimizing your resume for federal applications and writing knowledge, skill, and ability descriptions. Known as KSAs, they're an assessment tool used by the federal government for hiring.
