Goldpass is live

Goldpass is an online database that lets student search for jobs, internships and volunteer opportunities posted in any of the University's career offices. They can also post their resume and create profiles for employers to view. Students and alumni with University e-mail accounts can register here.

A couple more career items of interest:

Students interested in service learning, internships, volunteering or community-based research will find a wealth of information at Community-University Partnerships open house on Wednesday, April 5, from 4-6 p.m. in Coffman Union's Great Hall. No registration required.

And, finally, students who would like to make service learning a formal part of their education can attend a Community Engagement Scholars Program information session. The program allows students to simultaneously pursue their academic interests and make a difference in their community through integrating community engagement into their program. Participants not only receive special recognition from the University when they complete their degree:

Official Recognition:

-A certificate of recognition from the University of Minnesota
-Community Engagement Scholar notation on official academic transcript
-Acknowledgement of accomplishment listed in the commencement program
-A cord of distinction to be worn at commencement
-A special recognition reception honoring Scholars Program participants

...but also learn how to develop a structured approach to making a difference in a community; enjoy many opportunities to connect with other students, community organizations, faculty, and staff with similar interests; develop skills that will serve them throughout their career; and engage in career exploration and development.
