4 College Senior

Career Services at University of Phoenix - Online: The resources available in the Career Service Center are immeasurable. The tools that are provided for students are invaluable. There is so much help available.

5 College Sophomore

Career Services at University of Phoenix - Phoenix: From what I can see they are outstanding just like everything else here

College Junior

Career Services at University of Phoenix - Phoenix: I have almost completed my AA so have not yet used any post-grad services.

I understand that University of Phoenix has a great mentor program as ell as a

"pay it forward" type of Alumni program. I look forward to the benefits these

programs may offer. It was difficult to return to school at age 50, but a long

desired goal for me.

College Senior

Career Services at University of Phoenix - Memphis: I am not familiar with the post-grad services offered at the University of Phoenix.

4 College Senior

Career Services at University of Phoenix - Online: While my exploration of this has not yet been terribly extensive, I have seen enough of it to know that there is always something going on, always opportunities, and always potential for students looking to make their mark. You can communicate easily with other alumni and look into job opportunities.

The University offers a student enhancement site to access different programs and has other initial job search resources available, as well. Career Services and the Alumni Association currently share a job bank with LinkedIn for finance and accounting graduates. Recently, the University of Phoenix teamed up with Monster.com, the job bank and job search site, and Careerbuilder.com for job services. Both of the sites offer resume creation and construction services, as well as day-to-day search engine capabilities to check for job opportunities. In addition, many students refer to About.com for business services and the Web site's insight into today's entrepreneurs.

The University of Phoenix is currently up-to-date with student needs. For example, those students who are acquiring their teaching credentials could use Career Services to link up with HigherEdJobs.com and complete a curriculum vitae. Also, internships are offered with FastWeb and can be linked with the University of Phoenix. The University of Phoenix does offer job opportunities with the school, and the added feature of HigherEdJobs.com to construct a vitae resume would be of critical importance to a new graduate. Many times, University of Phoenix alumni become University of Phoenix employees. They are often recruited because of their understanding of the University's unique form of higher learning.
