UCM Lee's Summit students please contact Clarinda Dir.

Welcome to the Career Services Center.  I am the Career Development Coordiantor for students and faculty in the Harmon College of Business, Department of Computer Science and Mathematics, the School of Technology, and the Departmental of Environmental, Physical, and Applied Sciences.

Together we can develop your strategic plan; transitioning from college student, to job seeker to successful young career professional. We can discuss career opportunities and discover additional career paths. By helping you bring to light all of your transferable talents and skills, we can work together to prepare a resume that will get you noticed by employers. I can share with you all the secrets I know about conducting a successful job search and together we can polish your networking and interviewing skills until you shine. 


I have a Masters Degree in Counseling from UCM and am a member of Chi Sigma Iota Counseling Academic and Professional Honor Society. I hold a BFA in Graphic Design from the University of Kansas. In my former career in the advertising and printing industries I had the pleasure of learning about a wide variety of industries and businesses in the Kansas City area.

At the Career Services Center, we work together to deliver excellent services to the students and faculty here at UCM. We cultivate strong relationships with employers from many sectors to locate internship and employment opportunities for students like you. If you would like to schedule an appointment with me to discuss career choices, resume writing, or to set up a mock interview please call our office at 660-543-4985. I look forward to meeting with you.
