As a UMA grad, you know the quality of a UMA education, and how it helps prepare students to succeed on the job.
Through the UMA Career Connector program, you can tell UMA about open positions at your company and receive rewards and recognition in return. Once we know about these openings, we can help your company fill those positions with fellow UMA graduates.
For every verified job you submit, you’ll move one step closer to earning UMA rewards—including things like a UMA Alumni Tumbler, UMA Alumni Sweatshirt, and more! Read below for more details on rewards, how to participate, and the types of jobs UMA is looking for.

Getting started is easy:
- Ask your employer if they have open positions.
- Let UMA know about these positions by filling out the Career Connector form on the right. To get the most out of your referrals and earn your rewards, submit each job separately.
- We’ll keep track of your referrals, and keep you updated on the status of your submissions.
