Finding your Direction

Our intent: to empower, prepare, and educate students for their lifelong process of career success—succinctly sums up our services. Our career coaches work alongside students as they navigate their career path. Although no individual person’s career path looks the same, our career coaches support students through individual career coaching appointments, workshops, career fairs, and identifying and communicating strengths and passions for next steps and beyond.

Schedule a Document Review Appointment

Scheduling a document review is a great way to get feedback on formatting, organization, and content, as well as to learn how to tailor to specific positions or opportunities.

For those getting started, you can find tips, resources, and examples on our Resume and Cover Letter page

We offer two types of document review appointments:

  • Document Review (with a coach): schedule a day/time to meet with a career readiness coach over phone, Zoom, or Teams video chat.
  • Document Review (via email): schedule a day/time that you want to receive feedback by and connect with your coach via email to share your documents.

*If your document is longer than three pages, please schedule with a coach, not via email.
