Career Design Center

The Career Design Center encourages students to be active participants in their future by engaging their curiosities, trying things out, making adjustments, and embracing change, even when they might not be able to imagine their future career goals.

YOU ARE HERE… so let’s begin!


Quick chats are open drop-in times, so students can virtually drop in whenever works best for them between noon and 2 p.m. We don't typically pre-schedule time slots, these are done on a first come first serve basis. Quick chat conversations are usually about 15 minutes long (unless there aren't other students waiting, in which case we could talk for longer.)

Please call, stop in to Erwin 116, or email us at if you have any questions.

Quick Chats (Virtual Drop-In)

If you have a question, no more waiting for an appointment, you can just drop in for a virtual quick chat! These opportunities are offered at various times throughout the week. To attend, visit the Career Design Center Events Calendar for the Zoom link.

Small Group Discussions

Peer discussions led by career coaches on life design and other topics. The unique topic of discussion will be offered at various times. To attend, visit the Career Design Center Events Calendar for the Zoom link.

Career Design Center GOLD Programming

Workshops on career exploration, resume writing, interviewing, finding an internship, LinkedIn, and more. Sign-up for specific workshops through GOLD.

Handshake Design Labs

Meet with a Career Peer Mentor to complete your Handshake profile to connect with jobs, internships, employers, and events. Visit the Career Design Center Events Calendar for specific days/times.

A comprehensive one-on-one appointment can be scheduled, at the discretion of the career coach, after you attend a Quick Chat (Virtual Drop-In) appointment.

The Career Design Center's Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Belonging

Diversity, equity, and belonging are at the center of our work. We are committed to ensuring equitable access to career preparation by addressing equity gaps that can improve career mobility and positive outcomes. 100% of our staff members have completed Safe Zone and Mental Health First Aid Training, as well as the Advancing Cultural Competency Certificate (ACCC) Program. We strive to create a safe and supportive space that is welcoming to everyone and celebrates our differences. We also recognize that our DEB work is never complete and will focus on the continuous improvement to better support our students and campus community.

We appreciate you and you are welcome here!
