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, we ask that you schedule your appointment using CyHire.  Simply follow the directions below.

Winter 2020 and Spring 2021 Career Advising

Scheduled Appointments: During the 2020 Winter Term and Spring 2021 semester, the ECS office is eager to meet with you remotely! Scheduled appointments are highly encouraged. If you would like to talk with a career advisor, please schedule an appointment through your CyHire account by clicking on the ‘Request a Career Advising Appointment’ link from your homepage. After selecting an appointment time, you will indicate whether you would like to talk by phone or using video conferencing on your computer. Video conferencing can be useful for sharing documents and doesn’t need to involve live streaming of video.  Once your appointment is confirmed, we will email you instructions on how to connect with us at the time of your appointment.

Drop-in Advising: If you just have a quick question that doesn’t require a full appointment, you can use the chat feature in the bottom right corner of our website. This is monitored by our staff during business hours. If a staff member is unavailable at the time, you can leave a message and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Remember that we also have on-demand career advice available on our website and through the Engineering Career Prep Course in Canvas.  If you do not see this course on your Canvas dashboard or have any questions, email or call us (; 515-294-2540).
