New Times for Quick Advising!

Need a quick resume or cover letter review? Have a question about a job posting or career center event? Stop by the career center atrium during Quick Advising, Monday through Thursday, from 2 p.m. - 4 p.m.

Of course, you can always schedule a career advising appointment, up to one hour, by calling (757-221-3231) the Cohen Career Center or visiting the front desk, but Quick Advising provides an opportunity for you to drop-in without an appointment and get quick help on a focused topic.
