Career Services counselors are available to discuss concerns regarding career planning and job hunting during appointments, walk-ins and mock interviews. Walk-in appointments are 15-minute meetings available on a first-come first-served basis, appointments are half-hour meetings scheduled in advance and mock interviews are one-hour practice sessions designed to sharpen your interviewing skills. Videoing is available for mock interviews upon request. In addition to our regular walk-ins, also check out our schedule of wandering walk-ins at various cultural centers.
