Talk to a Career Counselor

Whether you know exactly what you want to do with your life or have no idea what the future holds, one-on-one career counseling is a valuable resource to help you reach your career goals. Career counselors can help you sort through the vast amount of information available to you and answer your individual career related questions about things such as your self-assessment results, your resume and cover letter, your upcoming interview, your job or internship search strategy or your career plan.

We are happy to see any and all students. If you don’t know where to start or feel like you already have a plan, we can help you determine your next steps. Feel free to bring a draft of your resume, or thoughts on jobs or careers that have interested you in the past to help start your first appointment. After your 45 minute career counseling appointment you will have:

  • An action plan and clarity about your next steps. (Please wait to fill out your personalized action plan during an appointment with a career counselor.)
  • A list of resources specific to your direction

The Career Education and Counseling team will also be offering student walk-in hours this fall. They are scheduled for 3 – 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday beginning on January 14 and ending on April 30. No hours will be offered on January 20 or March 10-13.  Students may with counselors for 15 minutes to discuss simple issues or pressing questions. Because this is not an hour long appointment, students may not be able to voice all of their needs.

We also offer 15 minute resume, cover letter, and LinkedIn profile reviews on Monday through Thursday 1 – 4 p.m.  Exceptions: extended hours 1 – 5 p.m. on January 21; and no reviews on January 20and March 10-13. The last day of reviews for the semester will be April 30.
