The goal of career counseling at the Career Center is to help students and alumni learn how to make informed decisions in their educational and career choices. Those decisions should reflect personal goals, values, and interests, and should lead toward satisfying academic work in their major and a fulfilling career.

Drop-in Services

Drop-In Hours:  Monday - Friday, 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

During drop-in hours, the Career Center provides drop-in services for alumni. Drop-ins are 15-20 minute time slots available for alumni to visit the Career Center on a drop-in basis and meet with a Career Counseling Intern. Drop-in appointments are a great place to start when you come to the Career Center for the first time, as well as follow-up visits for immediate assistance. A drop-in visit is required prior to scheduling an individual appointment with a career counselor. You can meet with Career Counseling Interns during drop-ins and discuss such things as:

  • cover letters
  • resume critique
  • job search strategies
  • interviewing tips
  • choosing/changing a career
  • researching the world of work
  • decision-making and goal setting
  • internships, part-time jobs, co-op positions
  • relating majors to the world of work
  • planning for graduate school
  • employment trends

Career Counseling Appointments

Appointments can be arranged after meeting with a drop-in counselor.

Career counselors are available for individual appointments. They enjoy working with alumni who want to learn about different occupations, who are looking for experience in a field of interest, and who are preparing for their job hunt.

One-hour individual appointments can be made with professional staff in the Career Center by calling (916) 278-6231, or by talking with the front desk when you come into the Career Center in Lassen Hall 1013.


If further assistance is needed please call (916) 278-6231 or email
