Advising and Career Checklists
Start on these items immediately following admission to a Terry major:
Update your resume.
The UGA Career Center offers numerous resources to help with your resume, including
walk-in resume review hours. Continue to build your resume by participating in Terry,
UGA and community organizations and activities.
Become familiar with Handshake, managed by the UGA Career Center, in order to apply
for internships and full-time positions: career.uga.edu/handshake
Participate in a mock interview
Call the UGA Career Center at (706) 542-3375 or visit them on the 2nd floor of Clark
Howell Hall to schedule a mock interview with your Career Consultant.
Schedule a professional photo.
Professional headshots can be purchased at low rates, and a shoot can be scheduled
through the UGACard Office at the Tate Student Center.
Attend Terry and Career Center events.
Each week of the semester is filled with networking opportunities. Read a complete
list in This Week at Terry and Career Center emails.
TerryConnect is an online networking community for Terry students and alumni. Learn
about industries, companies or cities of interest, receive advice from experts, join
special interest groups, engage in discussion boards and partake in mentoring with
fellow students through Terry PeerLink.
Complete all items BEFORE your appointment with your new Major Advisor:
Schedule an advisement appointment.
Schedule academic advisement through the SAGE appointment calendar: sage.uga.edu
Note appointment date, and arrive on time.
Arriving late or missing your advising appointment may impact your ability to register
for classes on time. See the Terry Policy for Scheduling Academic Advising Appointments:
Request transcripts for missing coursework.
If applicable, make sure all completed coursework at other institutions is visible
in DegreeWorks. If it is not, bring a copy of your transcripts from other institutions
to your advising appointment.
Check your UGAmail account daily.
The Terry College and major advisors communicate official information to students
regularly through UGAmail, and SAGE sends appointment reminders to your UGAmail account.
Your feedback is important to us!
Be sure to complete the Advisor Survey after your appointment
