My GUCC Experience

"I think it was extremely helpful and opened my eyes to opportunities and ideas that I had not previously given thought to or known about. It has given me a window into other options that I did not know existed and had not even thought of."

On a scale of 1-10, 10 being "excellent", how would you rate the service rendered by our Career Adviser?

"10 without a doubt. Yes, I would highly recommend this service. The service was very helpful and offered information specific to what I was looking for and was not just 'cookie cutter' information.
