  • Days and times you are available
  • Class year and major
  • The career related topic/issue you would like to address

Walk-in Hours
10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday. You are welcome to visit the Career Development Center during these hours to meet for 15-20 minutes with a career counselor on a first-come, first-served basis.
