Connect with a Career Counselor

We know that some of you might be informed of changes to your internships or job situations given the impact that COVID-19 is having on employment and internships at this time and wanted to give you information about how you can connect with the Center for Career Readiness if you need career counseling and support.

Virtual Meetings

Students seeking to connect with a career counselor can do so with a scheduled appointment or via drop- in hours. Both services will be offered remotely.

Schedule an Appointment

Drop-in Hours

To connect with a career counselor during drop-in hours, please e-mail between 12-3 PM Monday through Friday and our staff will get back to you as soon as possible with instructions for how to connect to a Career Counselor. Drop-in appointments will be scheduled for 20 minutes.

Document Review

We can also review documents via e-mail. If you have a resume, cover letter, graduate school essay etc. you can send it to and a career counselor will review it and send it back with comments and considerations within one week.
