Career Advising

Career Development offers both one-on-one advising for students, as well as group information sessions or workshops.

Be sure to look at a list of our upcoming events, and read the latest issue of our Career Development Newsletter, Career Talk. 

One-on-One Advising

Career Advising is an opportunity to meet one-on-one with a professional Career Advisor. Appointments last up to one hour and are tailored to your needs.  It’s not uncommon to be a little unsure of exactly what you might need, and we are happy to meet with students at any phase of their career search process. Examples of topics that students may wish to address with a Career Advisor include:

  • Choosing a Major
  • Taking career assessments
  • Exploring careers
  • Searching for an internships or volunteer experience
  • Preparing for the job search
  • Choosing a graduate/professional program and applying for graduate/professional school
  • Searching for jobs and building a network
  • Preparing for job interviews

If you would like to make an appointment with a Career Advisor, login to Handshake and request an appointment.
