Frequently Asked Questions
 

What do I need to bring to my appointment?
We want students to feel like they can come to an appointment even if they do not know exactly what they want to ask.  That said, there are some things that are helpful to bring for certain types of appointments: 
  • Resume, Cover Letter or Other Document Review -  Bring a draft of your document in hard copy for review and editing. 
  • Mock interview - Bring a resume and job description 
No appointments are available within the next 2 weeks. What should I do?

New appointment slots are added continually so please check back again.  You may very well get lucky and find an open slot sooner. You can also take advantage of drop-in hours held daily.

Is there a limit to the number of appointments I can make at one time?

You may only have a single, ‘currently scheduled’ appointment in the system at a time.  You may also utilize any of our drop-in hours even if you have a currently scheduled appointment in the system.

I need to cancel my appointment. How do I cancel and/or reschedule?

Refer to your confirmation email from the Career Center, where you will find a link to cancel/reschedule your appointment.  You may also call the Career Center.  **Please see cancellation policy below.

 

Policies
 

Appointment No-Shows & Cancellations:
If you cannot make a scheduled appointment, please cancel at least 24-hours prior to your appointment.  When you miss an appointment without contacting the office, a notation is made in your office record and repeated “no-shows” (2 or more) will jeopardize your ability to schedule future appointments.  
 
Being Late to an Appointment:
To minimize disruption for fellow students, if you arrive less than 15-minutes late, your appointment will be reduced by the number of minutes you arrive late.  Appointments cannot be extended and will end at the originally scheduled time. If you are more than15 minutes late, it will be recorded as a "no show" in your office record, and you will have to reschedule.
