Career Coaching

Gain personalized attention through career coaching. Whether you are exploring major or career options, preparing a resume or job searching, our professional career coaches customize appointments to meet your priorities. Coaching is action-oriented and empowers participants to set short-term action steps to work toward long-term career goals.

If you schedule an appointment and then have to cancel, please do so at least 24 hours in advance so someone else can schedule in that time slot. 

30-Minute Appointments

30-minute career coaching appointments offer time to discuss any career-related questions. All appointments are being held by telephone or Microsoft Teams. Please schedule using your Handshake account. Examples of common topics for career coaching include preparing for a job search, updating a resume, choosing a major, building a LinkedIn, and planning for graduate school. 30-minute appointments are available during regular office hours (Monday-Friday between 8:00am-5:00pm). If you need help using Handshake, visit our About Handshake resource page.
