Welcome to UNM-Valencia Career Services

We are here to help you, and we do more than just help you find a job. There are stages of career development and we help you at every stage.

  1. Know Yourself: Understanding more about yourself makes it easier to choose a career path. Career assessments can help you narrow down the career options and make a choice sooner.
  2. Exploring Options: Learning about careers, employment trends, and educational pathways helps you to make an informed career choice.
  3. Action Planning: Once you make a career choice you can set goals and plan the way you will reach them.
  4. Getting There: We will be with you as you execute your plan, seek out experience in your chosen field, and look for your first job. Job shadows, employer interactions, internships, and even jobs can help you be prepared when you graduate.

Our Services

The Career Advisor is available by appointment to assist you with choosing or changing your major, assessing abilities, interests and values, clarifying career goals, setting up a job shadow or internship, writing a résumé or cover letter, preparing for interviews and conducting a job search.

Want to meet with the Career Advisor? You can make an appointment by calling 505.925.8840 or by emailing

Career Assessments

These tests measure your personal characteristics and recommend a list of careers that match you. We offer the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and Strong Interest Inventory for $15 per assessment. Free assessments are also available. If you want to take a career assessment, please email or call 505.925.8840. Voicemail is checked daily, and all calls are returned within 24 hours.

Career Exploration

Information about possible careers is widely available on the Internet; however, it is important to get the information from a reliable source like the ones listed below:

O*Net – A database maintained by the U.S. Department of Labor on thousands of career classifications.

Occupational Outlook Handbook – A database maintained by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics on thousands of career classifications

Job & Internship Search

There are many ways to find a job, but the online search is the most common — if not the most effective. The best way to find a job is through your network; the people who know you and would happily recommend you to someone they know. We can help you be better at networking.
