Schedule an Appointment

The Career Development Center offers one-on-one career coaching appointments 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM Monday-Friday.

You may schedule an appointment with a career coach through Handshake. If you require assistance or are having trouble setting up an appointment, please email with your name, CWID, and the nature of your appointment. 

Coaches & Online Scheduling

Career coaches work according to a liaison model in order to specialize in particular industries and fields. This means you are assigned to a career coach based on your major. However, students are free to schedule an appointment with any coach based on preference. Career coaches and liaison areas are listed below. You may schedule an appointment with a career coach by clicking here.
