Career Advising

Need advice on your resume, cover letter, preparing for an interview, reviewing an offer, or any other career-related topics? Schedule an appointment with an advisor in Engineering Career Services. We are here to assist you. To avoid waiting and ensure that an advisor will be available to meet with you, it’s recommended that you schedule an appointment using CyHire, but we also have drop-in advising available. More information about both options is available below.
