Student Advisors: Our SUPERHEROES!

Liberal Arts & Business is also the home of four student advisors - our superheros! ICC Student Advisors are great resources for UCD students and alumni. They're trained in helping you find internships and career opportunities as well as many other things. Bring your resumes and cover letters in and they can help you polish them up; or if you don't have one, come in and see them and they'll help you get started. In addition, they have a lot of information that can help you in finding an internship or career that is right for you.

It is always advisable to speak with a Student Advisor specializing in your area of interest. However, all Student Advisors are trained in critiquing resumes. If you would like your resume critiqued and cannot make the scheduled time of your specific Student Advisor, visit one of our other Advisors - they are all eager and willing to help you. Read about our four superheros below and click on their bios for more information about their specialties.
