Career Advising Manual


This career advising information book is intended to assist University of Minnesota, Morris faculty and staff in answering some of the most commonly asked career planning questions. The information found in this book has been developed over the last years to help meet specific information needs.

The career information for each of the UMM majors includes a description of the major taken from the UMM Bulletin; a list of important and commonly agreed upon career skills identified by UMM faculty in each of the majors; a list of jobs obtained by UMM graduates in each major; and the graduate/professional programs and schools attended by graduates from the respective majors. The annual follow-up studies of UMM graduates and the longitudinal study of the 1964-1989 UMM graduates conducted by Career Services are the sources of much of the information found on the discipline career advising sheets.

The "What Can I Do With This Degree?" information sheets for each of the academic areas were acquired from the Career Services office at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, TN. You will find these major sheets helpful in advising students about specific strategies include taking course work outside of one's major; completing internships, directed studies, tutorials, seminars, and study abroad; obtaining career-related work-study and summer employment; and participating in volunteer experiences.

At the back of the book you will find a sample list of employers of UMM Graduates, entry level occupational titles, and occupational projections. Graduate/professional school advising considerations are included with a sample list of schools and programs attended by UMM alumni. Finally, procedures for establishing an internship and examples of necessary forms are included for your use.

Additional information on these items can be obtained by contacting the UMM Career Services, 589-6065.
