Due to the increase in traffic, the University Career Center asks that you arrive on time to all appointments to maintain the best possible service we can provide. Students who are more than 10 minutes late for an appointment will be asked to reschedule their appointment in order to maximize the time a career advisor can spend on your career development.
The UCC does not accept same-day appointments due to the nature of the assistance we provide. This policy allows our career advisors to maximize the amount of research and resources they can prepare for you before your time with them.
Appointments with Career Advisors are important to a student’s career development. To allow as many students as possible to meet with their advisor, we ask that students cancel appointments at least 48 hours prior to their appointment time which would allow for another student to take that appointment space.
In the instance a student does not cancel or show up for an appointment, the following will occur:
If a student misses one appointment without cancelling, Career Advisors will send an email to the student on how to reschedule the appointment and state the no-show policy and warn about a 2nd no show.
After two appointments without cancelling, Career Advisors will send an email to the student that the student is unable to schedule an appointment with an advisor for the remainder of the semester. After the 2nd missed appointment, the student will only be allowed to seek assistance via email from their career advisor or receive assistance from PCAs during drop-in hours for the remainder of the semester.
Students must email the career advisor a copy of their resume and a sample job description at least 2 days in advance to allow the advisor time to prepare for the mock interview. Students should wear business professional attire.
The UCC office has a team of Peer Career Ambassadors available Monday – Friday from 10am – 4pm (when classes are in session) to get you started on your career path and to help you maximize the resources available. They are on hand to assist you in scheduling with a career advisor if needed.
Students are allowed to use the Career Center computers to print a maximum of 10 pages for career related materials such as resumes, cover letters, personal statements, or other career related materials.
