U.Va. career office changes name

The former Office of Career Planning and Placement has become University Career Services, a name its director says reflects today's reality of multiple job changes and the need for acquiring lifelong job-searching skills.

"With experts predicting that today's graduates will work for as many as five different employers in as many as 10 different jobs, our emphasis is on empowering students to find jobs -- giving them solid job-search skills to use throughout a lifetime," said James McBride.

The office serves as a central career service for students of all majors. In addition to providing information on internships and externships in all fields, it also advises students who are interested in pursuing graduate or professional schools.
