Personalized Career Counseling

Students and recent graduates may schedule individual counseling appointments to discuss career goals and choices, resume and cover letter preparation, job searches and related career planning concerns. Discussions of options such as academic externships, extracurricular activities, part-time employment possibilities, and volunteer work with public interest organizations help students decide how to best incorporate those options into their long-range career planning.
