Career Counseling Appointments

A career counseling appointment is a great way to start a conversation about what is important to you, identifying your strengths and interests, and exploring your options and strategies. You may not know what your ideal career is, whether or not you want to go to graduate school, or even how to formulate your question, but you can always meet with a career counselor to get answers and learn about the resources available to you.  

Below is a list of the various topics you can discuss with one of our counselors.  To get a head start to your appointment, review the resources provided to you under the appropriate topic.
