Drop-in advising… with guests!

If you roam around campus on weekday afternoons, you’ve likely seen Career Center advisors providing drop-in career advising at various popular spots. This is a great way for us to meet you where you are: academic buildings, outside of the Dav and Mud Box, and near TDR. And during the fall semester, to offer students another opportunity to speak with professionals in a variety of careers, my SPA colleague Chris Hughes and I will feature guest advisors during some of our drop-in sessions.

Guest advisors are practitioners in fields of interest to AU students and can review resumes, share information about job and internship opportunities, and provide general career guidance. If you’ve ever had questions about the day-to-day work of a particular job, or potential career paths in a specific field or ways to set yourself up for success when applying for jobs and internships, this is your opportunity to ask them!

If you plan to attend one or more of these sessions, please bring any relevant materials (for example, if you’d like a resume review, please bring a printed copy of your latest version) as well as any questions you have about the field, application process or the professional path of our invited guests. RSVPs are not required.
