Career Counseling consists of one-on-one sessions with a career consultant during which students receive advice on a variety of topics including choosing a major, searching for a job, and everything in between. Students interested in meeting one-on-one with a career consultant begin by stopping by the office for a 15 minute walk-in session. Based on the outcome of this first meeting, arrangements for more in-depth follow-up meetings can be made.
The Center for Career Development offers one-on-one advising to discuss career-related needs and questions. Typical advising sessions focus on:
- Choosing a Major
- Exploring Careers
- Finding Jobs
- Finding Internships
- Writing Resumes or Cover Letter
- Thinking About Graduate School
- Preparing for Interviews
