Need Help Preparing for the UGA Career Fair?

Our SVRC Graduate Assistants (Readiness Coaches) stand ready to help. Over 80% of our undergraduates are already working with a specific GA, and most of our GAs are here through Dec 15, returning January 4th. If you haven’t connected with your assigned GA, please reach out this week to establish a time to meet. 

With enough lead time our coaches, in partnership with the Career Center, your College, and our non-profits, can work with you to ensure you have a competive resume and brand.

If you don't know who your readiness coach is or want to request one, please click here.

Need Help with Academics?

Starting this Spring semester all of our newly transferred undergraduates are meeting with our Academic Coach, Dr. Sylvia Hutchinson, to navigate the academic hurdles often encountered during the first year of study at UGA. 

If you haven't already met Sylvia, but wish to do so click here.
