The Center offers individual appointments for students to meet with staff and discuss and review their own career path. We work with students to strategically engage in topics such as: resume and cover letter writing, interviewing and networking skill development, and searching for internships and jobs.

Information on these topics may also be presented through classroom settings and club and organization meetings.

Students can connect with a member of our career counseling staff at any time throughout the year. Our office is available for appointments Monday through Friday, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on any day other than official holidays.
