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. Attend our virtual drop ins through Zoom Monday-Friday 12-4pm, to meet with a member of the Career Development Center (CDC) staff.
