The Career Management Center has just undergone an extreme makeover! The new and improved Ulmer Career Management Center (UCMC) was unveiled in January 2006. The UCMCl features two large conference rooms, 10 interview rooms, a corporate lounge, and a library that stocks business periodicals and other research tools to assist you in finding the job that’s right for you. These cosmetic changes are accompanied by exceptional job-placement services that benefit students and alumni alike.
