The UO Office of Human Resources partners with Cascade Centers to provide our employee assistance program (EAP), which offers a variety of resources for faculty and staff, such as one-on-one career counseling, assessment and testing, and job seeking services. Resources are available both in-person and online.

Confidential one-on-one sessions with an EAP representative are available and can be customized for each individual based on their specific career transition needs. Areas of assistance can include a general assessment of interests, motivation, and job skills, writing a resume and cover letter, interviewing skills, job search assistance, and many other career transition services.
