Career Services is virtual

Virtual resources to support students

Career Services is available to provide our services both virtually and in-person. 

Although our team members are working primarily on campus now, we are excited to continue offering virtual services and appointments. Students have the choice of meeting with us in-person or virtually over video conference in Handshake, as well as, submitting documents online to be reviewed through Canvas. Our fall career fairs will remain virtual this year.

Appointments

  • Make an appointment. When scheduling a virtual appointment, students will be able to join the video conference directly in Handshake up to 5 minutes before the start of their appointment. For in-person appointments, students will need to check-in at the front desk of UW1 (Founders Hall) by letting them know which Career Coach they're meeting with, and per University policy, will need to wear a mask while in the building and throughout the entire appointment.
  • Request an online resume or cover letter review. If you are a student and would like to have your resume or cover letter reviewed electronically, please enroll in this Canvas site. You can upload your materials and receive feedback within 2 business days.
