Alumni Career Services Can Help Career Searches

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Jan. 27, 2020) — Are you looking to get a jump start on a new career? Alumni Career Services (ACS) can help.

All University of Kentucky Alumni Association members (anyone who completed 12 credit hours or more at UK) can give their career search a boost by attending drop-in hours noon-1 p.m. and 1-2 p.m. on the first Tuesday of each month at the ACS office at 201 Malabu Dr., Suite 200, Lexington.

There will be two first-come, first-served sessions limited to five individuals per drop-in day, per hour. Counselors will be present to work on resumes, cover letters, interview preparation and other career-related topics. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own laptops or materials for review.

Members must register for the drop-in session online and can only attend the session they register for online. To register, go to www.ukalumni.net/ACSDropIn. For more information, email ukalumnicareer@uky.edu.

The UK Alumni Association is committed to fostering lifelong engagement among alumni, friends, the association and the university. For more information about the UK Alumni Association, visit www.ukalumni.net or call 800-269-2586.

The University of Kentucky is increasingly the first choice for students, faculty and staff to pursue their passions and their professional goals. In the last two years, Forbes has named UK among the best employers for diversity, and INSIGHT into Diversity recognized us as a Diversity Champion four years running. UK is ranked among the top 30 campuses in the nation for LGBTQ* inclusion and safety. UK has been judged a “Great College to Work for" three years in a row, and UK is among only 22 universities in the country on Forbes' list of "America's Best Employers."  We are ranked among the top 10 percent of public institutions for research expenditures — a tangible symbol of our breadth and depth as a university focused on discovery that changes lives and communities. And our patients know and appreciate the fact that UK HealthCare has been named the state’s top hospital for five straight years. Accolades and honors are great. But they are more important for what they represent: the idea that creating a community of belonging and commitment to excellence is how we honor our mission to be not simply the University of Kentucky, but the University for Kentucky.
