WPI Plans for Fall Opening Latest Information


Drop-ins give you the opportunity to ask quick questions, get your resume or cover letter critiqued, learn about Handshake, and more.

Drop-ins don’t require an appointment; instead, you’ll be able to see a CDC staff member on a first-come, first-served basis. Please bring paper copies of your resume and cover letters when you stop by. Drop-ins are only open to current undergraduate and graduate students.

Peer to Peer Drop In Topics: 

Resume Critique, Cover Letter Critique, Handshake Overview, Employer Follow Up, Career Fair Prep, Thank You Note.
