Letters of Recommendation
Letters of recommendation from faculty and staff are a critical part of student career success no matter whether the student is applying to a graduate program, seeking work, a fellowship, or grant opportunity. UCS helps by providing a system to manage letters as well as offering information on "best practices" as guidance to letter writers.
UCS File Services to Manage Recommendation Letters
University Career Services offers three (3) different placement files for letters of recommendation and supportive material for students/alumni seeking admission to graduate and professional school, candidates applying for teaching positions or doctoral students looking to send information to search committees.
