Student Lounge

Kelly and Joanna plan on hanging out in the student lounge each week for a few hours to be available for any of those “quick” questions you might have about your job or internship search. We will announce our hours in every newsletter as they may vary from week to week. Come and see us if you have a brief question or need a quick resume review—or just want to say hi and tell us about your summer!

NEW! Online Career Chat Sessions
Watch for dates/times in our next newsletter!
We realize that many of you may be too busy to stop in to see us or come to all of our programs, so we’re making it easier for you to connect with us so that we can answer any of your career-related questions and concerns. We will hold these online chat sessions in the evenings throughout the semester through ctools.
Watch for publicity soon!
