Student and Alumni Services
Individual Career Appointments
Meet with a career professional to discuss any issue related to building and advancing your career. Meetings are held face-to-face, by phone, over Skype, or through other forms of appropriate technology. To schedule an appointment, email both of our career professionals with background information on the career issue you’d like to discuss, and whether you would prefer to meet onsite or online.
During mock interviews, you will be asked a variety of interview questions and provided with helpful feedback over Skype. Phone interviews can also be scheduled to provide practice for the phone screening interview. In some cases, this is the initial interview that can determine whether a second, face-to-face interview is warranted. Email the Career Center at email@example.com to schedule your mock interview and include an updated resume.
Looking for an internship or a job? Handshake is an online link between employers, students and alumni. The system allows you to view job and internship listings and apply online for local, regional and national vacancies, among many other features.
The Career Center has created a number of informational handouts and on a variety of areas related to building and advancing your career. They are organized by category, with a brief description of each handout. We encourage you to use them as a resource in your career development and planning.
