You and a Career Advisor will develop an action plan which will support your job or internship search, including discussing your educational and professional history, future career goals, current concerns, and formulating recommendations for next steps. Appointments are usually 45 minutes in length and can be scheduled by contacting us.
These 10-minute advisement sessions are an opportunity to obtain quick information from a Career Advisor on a first-come, first-served basis. They take place from 4:00PM – 5:00PM, Monday through Thursday. Some suitable items to discuss during “walk-ins” include: one section of your resume or cover letter, a thank you or networking letter, a follow-up strategy after having met a key contact, or a troublesome interview question.

If you’re unsure of your career target, a self-assessment tool is a great place to start. Strengths Finder looks at your values. Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) is designed to measure psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions. An appointment with a Career Advisor is required to debrief results of both Strengths Finder and the MBTI®.
A mock interview is a practice interview with a Career Advisor who can provide you with immediate feedback on your performance. It is a great way to improve your interviewing skills and to develop stronger strategies for marketing your unique skillset and experience.
The On-Campus Recruiting (OCR) program is designed for employers who recruit the upcoming year’s graduates for full-time positions and continuing students for summer internships.
