Drop-Ins

Drop-ins are offered 1:00pm-3:00pm, Monday through Thursday, during the fall and spring semesters any day class is in session. Drop-ins are quick conversations (about 5-10 minutes). Need more time? Book an appointment and we will be happy to chat! Resume and cover letter guidance should be directed to Resume Labs.

Resume Labs

Resume Labs are offered Monday through Thursday and are led by a trained student Career Ambassador. They operate similar to drop-ins, but exclusively for resumes and cover letters at any stage of the process - whether you seek guidance on how to begin or are looking for a final review. Come when you can, and stay for as long as you like depending on your personal needs!

For the full listing of Resume Labs, please visit the Events tab in Handshake. You will find the dates, times, and locations.

NEW! Pop-In Fridays!

Five hours of open advising! Pop in on Fridays 10am-3pm for combined drop-in hours and Resume Lab. No topic is off the table! Anyone who stops by on Friday will also receive a free treat!

Note: these drop-ins are still quick 5-10 minute conversations; students seeking resume assistance will be welcome to stay as long as they wish in our suite space and the Career Advisor on duty will regularly check in with them to ensure proper guidance.

Visiting the Office

During the semester, the office is open 8:30am-7:00pm, Monday through Wednesday, and 8:30am-4:30pm on Thursdays and Fridays. The office is located in Cushing-Martin Hall, adjacent to the Meehan School of Business and the library. We are on the right side of the front lobby.

Events & Programs

We are lining up a year full of alumni panels, workshops, networking events, and our annual Job and Internship Expo. Check the Events tab in Handshake for an ever-growing schedule, registration instructions, and appropriate links...and check back often!

Employers are capitalizing on virtual recruiting and hosting many programs on their own which are ideal exploration and networking opportunities for students of all years and majors. Shop around and take advantage of the convenience of virtual programming!
