Career Services is here to help:
Our first priority at Career Services is the well-being of our community. With that in mind, we are temporarily suspending in-person appointments and on-campus programs/events.
We are offering phone and Zoom appointments with our career counselors to our students and alumni.
CPA Drop-in Hours
Think of your Career Peer Advisors as your Career Services 101 resource.
Weekdays beginning Tuesday, September 8 and continuing through the entire semester, the CPA team will host zoom drop-ins every weekday afternoon from 1-3 pm EDT. Hop on for assistance with building/polishing your resume and cover letter, taking a look at your social media presence, getting to know what events are upcoming in Career Services, talking about recruiting cycles, networking; and so much more. Join here on Zoom.
These are your peers, they are your classmates, they are your friends, but most importantly, they are trained and skilled in all of these areas and look forward to getting to know you. Learn more about your CPAs here.
If you need application materials reviewed (resume, CV, cover letter, etc), please email email@example.com.
If you have specific questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
