College to Career initiatives look to foster success and professional development starting with academic interests. Building on the shared strengths of a UW Arts & Sciences degree, College to Career programs help students identify which liberal arts skills they excel in, and add to those a better sense of personal strengths and ambitions. That combination of academic and personal strengths will direct them to fulfilling professional experiences while still undergraduates and after graduation.

    Everyone knows you need an internship. But as a result of the COVID-19 crisis, many internships have been canceled or shortened. It is harder than ever to find an internship, and harder still to find one that really develops the key skills you need. What if there was a professional experience to develop and practice those key skills in a real-world context, where you would be continually challenged to grow, giving you the evidence to show employers how you are different from other candidates? This summer we are piloting an immersive, virtual internship bootcamp, where you will learn and practice key project management skills important to any internship or a full-time job. We will "hire" a small number of interns into our own C21 training startup. Eligibility: Only open to undergraduates in the College of Arts & Sciences (Seattle-campus)

We need more people, across every occupation and field, who can bridge the gap between the quantitative and qualitative, and make complex information meaningful to different audiences.

    LinkedIn has identified over 4,400 UW alumni working at Microsoft, and they come from all majors and degree programs. For students in the UW College of Arts & Sciences, understanding roles for liberal arts backgrounds at tech companies might seem challenging because there is not a prescribed, linear route for the majority of our majors. This program will change your perspective on what the world of work looks like, not just at a tech company but through the lens and guidance of diverse professionals interested in helping our students better understand professional life after their undergraduate degree.
