Reality Check
Life after Cal isn't organized in 15-week semesters or dictated by exam schedules. The transition from being a student into the 'real world' can be disorienting -- but we can help you with that! 
 Come see us, even if you aren't exactly sure of what you want to talk about.

What Happens in a Career Counseling Appointment?

In an appointment you can: 

  • Discuss career options of interest and strategies to find employers who offer jobs/internships in those fields.
  • Identify your interests and strengths and how they align with majors and careers.
  • Understand and utilize successful job/internship search strategies.
  • Find resources to research graduate and professional school programs.
  • Review your resume and cover letter, work on interviewing and other job search skills.
  • Develop a personal plan of action for the job/internship search or graduate school application process.
