Engage with Us!
We are adjusting our engagement practices in fall 2020 to increase accessibility to our team and maintain health and safety measures.
We are ready to work with you when you are! We recognize everyone comes in at different stages of career exploration and professional development. Let's connect, strategize ideas and an action plan, and discuss how we can best support you through this journey.
Visiting the Office
We are striving to keep the office open 8:30am-4:30pm to assist you with any questions that might come up. Need us? Pop in and we will be glad to assist you by directing you to virtual appointments, programs, and resources. Thank you for consistently practicing social distancing and wearing masks while you are in the Kruse Center.
The office is located in Cushing-Martin Hall, adjacent to the Chapel and the library. We are on the right side of the front lobby.
There may be occasions where we need to close the office for a short time. Please bear with us if the office is closed momentarily as our team is balancing family care, working remotely, working in-office, and teaching on campus.
We are still available to work with you 1:1 to discuss anything from internships, career exploration, networking and LinkedIn, etc. We will gladly connect with you over the phone or Zoom. Sign into Handshake to select your date, time, choice of phone or Zoom, and even which Advisor with whom you would like to meet. Be sure to leave us your phone number in the notes section if applicable. You will receive an email containing the appropriate Zoom link once your appointment request has been approved.
In-person appointments will be scheduled on a very rare basis and only for extenuating circumstances. You may request one by calling the front desk at 508-565-1325, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or by contacting a Career Advisor directly. In-person appointments, when granted, will take place at one of two prepared stations in the back of the suite. No appointments will take place in an Advisor's office due to space restrictions.
Drop-ins will be facilitated via Zoom 1:00pm-3:00pm, Monday through Friday. Drop-ins are quick conversations (about 5-10 minutes). Need more time? Book an appointment and we will be happy to chat! Resume reviews should be done through Resume Labs, as drop-ins are simply too quick to provide effective feedback on such detailed documents.
Resume Labs are offered daily via Zoom, and are led by a Career Center staff member and/or a trained student Career Ambassador. Attending a virtual Lab is the easiest way to get instant instruction and feedback on your resume and cover letter.
Resume Labs will operate similar to virtual drop-ins, but specifically for resumes and cover letters. You will first enter the Zoom waiting room. A team member will let you in when it is your turn and provide some instruction on how to build or improve your documents. If you have a draft of a resume already, be prepared to remotely share your desktop so we can see it. Then, the team member will put you back in the waiting room to continue working on your own, occasionally checking in on you to answer any questions and providing more instruction when needed. You may stay as long as you wish, and come and go as you please.
While you might experience varied wait times based on student attendance, this is the best way to provide safe and personalized guidance to every student. We will do our best to keep wait times to a minimum and keep you moving forward.
For the full listing of Resume Labs, please visit the Events tab in Handshake. You will find the dates, times, and appropriate Zoom links for the fall semester.
NEW! - We are excited to offer weekly virtual webinars on all our favorite topics, presented via Zoom. Can't make the live session? That's okay! You can catch the replays on eLearn. Sign into eLearn, click on "Organizations," and check out the content in the Career Devleopment Center account.
If you want to join us live, check the Events tab in Handshake for topics, times, and appropriate Zoom links!
Our free interview attire borrowing closet remains open and accessible, but with a limited inventory this semester. If you have an outfit that will work for virtual interviews, please bring it with you to campus.
Our fitting room is closed as you will not be able to try anything on due to state regulations. Stop by 8:30am-4:30pm, Monday through Friday, and a Career Advisor will assist you in identifying an outfit that should work for you.
Students will be allowed to sign out one outfit only, and may use it for the semester. Items must be returned before students go home for Thanksgiving and winter break. Clothing will not be recirculated until it has been professionally dry cleaned.
