With career assessments, tips on personal branding, résumé and cover letter writing and more, you can make yourself stand out from the other candidates.
You can meet with a Career Advisor either by scheduling an appointment using the online system or by stopping in during drop-in hours from Monday to Thursday between 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
We have several employment resources to better prepare you for your interview or internship. In addition to one-on-one appointments, our Career Advising Team will also deliver the following workshops and presentations to any group of students (student organizations, classes, independent groups) of 10 or more.
