The Career Development Center has many resources and services available to alumni.
Prior to the disruptions to the job market created by COVID-19, alumni within 12 months of their graduation date had full access to individual appointments with our team of career coaches. However, in light of these disruptions, any alumni can schedule an appointment with a career coach. To schedule an appointment, visit the appointment page on Handshake or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Virtual Walk-In hours are available Monday-Thursdays, 2:00-4:00 PM. Virtual Walk-In hours are brief (15 minute or less) 1-on-1 meetings with a career coach for quick career-related questions or overview of any of our online resources.
