UCM Lee's Summit students please contact Clarinda Dir.

Welcome to the Career Services Center. I serve as the Career Development Coordinator for the School of Professional Studies, School of Technology, & Department of Environmental, Physical and Applied Sciences.

I work closely with the faculty here at UCM to identify learning opportunities for their students. We work to cultivate relationships with employers from many sectors to locate internship and employment opportunities. I am here to assist you in developing your strategic plan; transitioning from college student, to job seeker to successful young career professional..

I enjoy discussing career opportunities with students and can assist you in discovering additional career paths. By helping you bring to light all of your transferable talents and skills, we can work together to prepare a resume that will get you noticed by employers. I can share with you all the secrets I know about conducting a successful job search and together we can polish your networking and interviewing skills until you shine.

I have a bachelors degree in Graphic Design from the University of Kansas, currently working on a Masters Degree in Counseling here at UCM and am a member of Chi Sigma Iota Counseling Academic and Professional Honor Society. In my former career in the advertising and printing industries I had the pleasure of learning about a wide variety of industries and businesses in the Kansas City area.

At the Career Services Center, we work together to deliver excellent services to the students and faculty here at UCM. If you would like to schedule an appointment with me to discuss career choices, resume writing, or to set up a mock interview please call our office at 660-543-4985. I look forward to meeting with you.
