What happens in the Career Studio?

 The Career Studio is a workspace where students can:

  • drop in for a quick conversation with a trained staff member
  • sit down, open a laptop, and spend time working on career tasks

Students can talk with a staff member about career issues or get feedback and assistance with resumes, cover letters, and LinkedIn profiles. Other topics addressed in the Career Studio include:

  • Salary Negotiation
  • Job Search and Networking Strategy
  • Career Fair Prep
  • Personal Statements
  • Interviewing
  • Major and Career Exploration

The Career Studio is staffed by trained Peer Career Coaches and professional staff members.  The goal is to help students with career issues from the first year through the first job. No appointment needed!
