Get answers to your questions about specific opportunities, application materials, and summer projects. Virtual drop-ins are 20 minutes and first come, first serve. In digital drop-in hours we will use breakout rooms for one-on-one discussions.

To schedule an appointment with an advisor, log in to Handshake, click “Career Center” in the top navigation menu, and then select “Appointments.” To request an appointment, click the blue “Schedule A New Appointment” button. The advisor will email you instructions for a Zoom or phone call.
