Resources and Tools to Help Students
Online Resources for Students
Student Engagement & Career Development subscribes to a number of tools and resources that students can access free of charge. The most notable resources are CareerBeam, Quinnica, and What Can I Do With This Major.
- Career Planning allows your students to complete career assessments in order to help create a personal career plan by identifying their interests, skills, values, and ideal work environment.
- Getting The Job covers creating a pitch, cover letters, follow-up, and job postings.
- Research Tools provides your students with search aides including People Search, Industry Reports, WorldWide Company Search, US Company Search, a Salary Wizard, and E-Library (over 1,400 career resources in alphabetical order).
- Account is the section where you can personalize your search and manage your profile, such as documents, companies, job alerts, internships, contacts, and calendar.
Please Note: The University of Arizona has discontinued its subscription to GoinGlobal as of November 2017. Please encourage students to utilize Handshake (http://arizona.joinhandshake.com). Other external websites such as overseasjobs.com may also be useful resources for students.
Quinnica helps students practice their interviewing skills in an interactive format. Students can choose from 7500+ interview questions, record the interview, and send the interview to someone else, such as yourself, for review (if they wish). For faculty members wishing to integrate interview preparation into their curriculum, assigning students to utilize Quinncia is an excellent option.
