Get In-Person Coaching

Coaching services are open to current undergraduate students, graduate students and alumni of the University of Cincinnati.

Coaching is available in two formats: a walk-in appointment with a peer coach or a scheduled, in-depth appointment with a professional coach.

Walk In to Meet with a Peer Career Coach

  • Do you need some quick advice on your resume, cv, or cover letter?
  • Are you looking for a mock interview or need some last-minute advice for the career fair?
  • Have you been struggling to piece together a professional LinkedIn profile?
  • Are you trying to figure out how to use Handshake?
  • Do you need some advice NOW?

If any of these sound like you, then a Peer Career Coach is for you.

You can stop in and see a Peer Career Coach when it fits your schedule, no appointment needed. Get help with your resume/cv, cover letter, preparing for the career fair, mock interviews, crafting a self-introduction, creating a LinkedIn profile, using Handshake for the job search, and more.
