Career Services

The ultimate goal of the Military & Veterans Resource Center (MAVRC) is to support military and veteran students throughout their education programs and assist with successful transitions into their planned careers. MAVRC works to implement career services programming that is relevant and based on UWM student veteran needs.

Resume and Career Planning Assistance

Collaborating with MAVRC staff to provide resume and career planning assistance to military and student veterans is Sherri Pfennig, Assistant Director of Counseling for the Center for Student Experience and Talent. Sherri is available to help you with resumes and career planning. Through the exploration of skills, values, and interests, she will guide you through the process of matching those with potential majors and careers.
