Where We Are

101 Botany Building, next to Taylor Hall along 7th Street.

What We Do

The Center for Career Advancement can help you refine your job search through career counseling, workshops and career assessment tests. We connect you with externship and internship opportunities to help you test the waters and gain important real-world experience.

During the academic year, we are open weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Summer hours are weekdays from 8 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4 p.m.

Make an Appointment

While the Center for Career Advancement staff will be present on campus, visits will be by appointment only. We ask that you contact the Center first via phone or email, or make an appointment in Handshake to speak with a career counselor or coach remotely. Staff will work with you to arrange in-person meetings as necessary.
