Meet With a Career Educator

Career Educators are available for one-to-one appointments either in person or virtually. Eligible students and alumni can sign up through Handshake.

Reality Check

The transition from being a student into the ‘real world’ can be disorienting — but we can help you with that! Come see us, even if you aren’t exactly sure of what you want to talk about.

What Happens in a Career Appointment?

In an appointment you can:

  • Discuss career options of interest and strategies to find employers who offer jobs/internships in those fields.
  • Identify your interests and strengths and how they align with majors and careers.
  • Understand and utilize successful job/internship search strategies.
  • Find resources to research graduate and professional school programs.
  • Review your resume and cover letter, work on interviewing and other job search skills.
  • Develop a personal plan of action for the job/internship search or graduate school application process.

Get the Most From a Career Appointment

  • Be on time or call 510-642-1716, press 2 and then 5 to quickly route your call if you’re running late. If you’re more than 10 minutes late you will be marked as a ‘no show’ per our appointment policy, and will have to reschedule.
  • Bring a resume or upload a copy of your resume into Handshake if you have one. See our Resume page for information on how to get started.
  • Think about what you want to get from the session and even jot down a few notes if that will help
