We recommend you start with a group coaching lab or parallel Canvas module for help with specific aspects of the job search and career exploration process – from self-assessment to resumes to salary negotiations and everything in between. This will allow you to have a more informed discussion with a career coach when you meet 1 on 1.

For quick questions, visit the Career Studio during our daily drop-in hours, virtually or on the Boston campus in Stearns, following instructions below. Use virtual drop-in hours for document reviews (Resume, Cover Letter, LinkedIn) to ensure COVID-safe protocols.
