We offer scheduled or drop-in appointments to students and alumni who graduated within the past two years.

  • Request an appointment through Handshake or call our office at 651-690-8890.
  • Drop-in appointments are first-come, first-served and are meant for brief consultations, résumé feedback, and questions that can be handled in about 15 minutes. Drop-in hours vary each semester.
  • There are no drop-in hours over the summer.

While career counseling is best done in person, arrangements can be made upon request for a telephone or online session for College for Adults, graduate, or online students.
