During drop-in hours, you'll meet with a trained peer career coach. Peer career coaches provide personal attention, sound advice and relevant resources. They'll work one-on-one with you on things like:

  • Resume writing and review
  • Curriculum vitae (CV) writing and review
  • Cover letters
  • Job search process
  • Mock interviews
  • Elevator pitch practice
  • Networking strategies
  • LinkedIn and Handshake profile review

How to Access Drop-In Peer Career Coaching

Peer career coaching is available both virtually and in person. Just drop in – no appointment needed! Average visit time is 30 minutes, but you can take as much or as little time as you need and come back as often as you want. The service is first-come, first served.
