Career services meeting

TUSDM Career Services aims to educate and prepare its students and alumni for the dental profession. The office also interacts with alumni and employers to provide career opportunities and information to current students. The resources available to students and alumni stem from the following core tenets:

Develop: The office assists with document review (i.e. resume, CV, cover letter), interview preparation, and job search skill refinement needed to enter or advance within the profession.

Employ: Career Services manages a free online career management system available exclusively to students and alumni to assist in their job search. With this resource, applicants can look for job postings and practices for sale, while alumni can also recruit for openings. Stay tuned for more information about our new platform, Handshake, coming soon!

Network: Students will have the opportunity to connect with alumni and employers to gain a better sense of the job market at events such as the annual Spring Career Fair.

Transition: The office provides guidance to students as they transition from dental students to healthcare professionals, including resources for the various licensure examinations.  

Advise: Staff is available to meet individually with students and alumni to discuss their career goals and the best steps to attain them.

Learn: Students still determining their career path will have the opportunity to learn about various career options and possibilities available to them.

TUSDM has transitioned to a new, comprehensive job posting platform called Handshake. Handshake is a recruiting platform, connecting students and alumni to employers for jobs and career events. Please visit the website by clicking here
