Meet the Career Services Team

As some of you already know, we have a new career services team! Now that we’ve survived the iSchool Career Fair and Library Expo, we wanted to introduce ourselves:

Caitlin Goldbaum, Assistant Director for Career Services

Caitlin is thrilled to be joining the iSchool as the Assistant Director for Career Services. During her five years at UW, Caitlin has worked as a lead career coach for the Career and Internship Center, academic advisor for the School of Drama, and HR assistant for UW Medicine. Caitlin approaches career services through a social justice lens with a focus on helping first generation, underrepresented minority, and international students through the transition from student to professional. She serves on the UW Diversity Leadership Conference committee and volunteers as a career coach for Rainier Scholars. Caitlin holds an MA in Ethnomusicology from Indiana University and BA in Ethnomusicology from Carleton College. When she’s not helping students with resumes and interview prep, you can find Caitlin running half marathons, obsessing over musicals, singing, and baking treats.

Come meet Caitlin at her two workshops this quarter:

LinkedIn Lab (Zoom) on February 19th from 5-6pm
Networking for People Who Hate Networking (HUB 332) on February 27th from 12:30-1:30

Julie Loh, Career Advisor

Julie has been happily (and crazy busy) working as the career advisor since October. She previously worked as an advisor for the Robinson Center for Young Scholars. Julie emphasizes a mental health and values-based approach to finding a career that best fits students. She likes planning career exploration trips for students to tour and learn about local companies and organizations. Julie has a BA in Psychology & BS in Physiology from UW and a MS in Molecular Medicine from National Taiwan University. During her free time, she enjoys watercolor painting, crocheting, playing video games, and taking Snoopy on walks.

You can schedule an appointment with Caitlin or Julie in iCareers.

Snoopy, iSchool Career Services Mascot

Snoopy is an adorable fluffy corgi with aspirations of becoming an Instagram influencer. He loves belly rubs, laying in the sun, and anything peanut butter flavored.
