The mission of Career Services is to empower students to identify and maximize the connection between what they learn and how they make a living. Ultimately, it is crucial for students to self-manage their own lifetime career development. To that end, we offer comprehensive services to facilitate self-assessment, skill identification, career exploration, decision-making, career preparation and graduate school selection. Partnering with faculty, staff, alumni and employers we seek to guide students toward active citizenship in an interdependent world through productive and satisfying work.
Our vision is to be a leading career services office within the greater Gallup communities and within our peer group of branch colleges. We strive to help students perfect their professional skills, including but not limited to business etiquette, interview skills, job hunting. We also work with employers looking for the perfect UNM-G student or graduate to fulfill their company’s needs. The UNM-G Office of Career Services is located in Gurley Hall and works in close partnership with the UNM Albuquerque Career Services Office to provide all of our customers with an effective and efficient recruiting experience. Every year we work with students and alumni on evaluating what their career means to them and what their major means to them. Do they need a Master’s degree or Ph.D. and if so, we help them figure out what graduate school best suits them for this career path. We welcome you to UNM Gallup and to Student Affairs and to our Career Services Office.

Our office provides professional career advisement to current UNM students, faculty and staff as well as UNM alumni and all veterans. A Career Development Facilitator (CDF) is available through appointments or walk-ins to assist students in assessing abilities, interests and values, clarifying career goals, writing a resume or cover letter, preparing for interviews, conducting a job search or preparing to attend graduate school. We also partner closely with area businesses to facilitate job shadowing and co-op agreements as well as internships.
We can help with your career issue. This includes looking over your resume and cover letter, as well as assisting you in searching for internships and/or full or part-time positions.
We provide tables and rooms for employers currently recruiting and looking to hire UNM-G students and graduates. Every semester we offer career events, including the Welcome Students event with employer tables, and other career fairs throughout the year. We host the Hospitality Career Fair, the Law Enforcement/Military/Firefighter Career Fair, and more.
