Welcome to the Engineering Career Development and Experiential Learning Center. The Engineering Career Center is here to help engineering students develop their professional skills and to provide opportunities for students, faculty and employers to meet and develop mutually beneficial relationships. Located in Marston 112, we have a dedicated staff to assist both undergraduate and graduate students with a variety of career-related needs.
During this time of suspended in-person services, The College of Engineering Career Center will continue to offer services via remote channels (telephone, Zoom video call, email, online, etc.). Between our website and Handshake, the Engineering Career Center has been offering remote and online services for years, and how you access those services remains the same.
In terms of career advising, all appointments ("scheduled" and "drop-in") will be scheduled, and the sign-up process remains the same, simply log-in to Handshake and sign-up for an appointment. However, rather than coming to the Career Center for your appointment, it will be conducted via telephone or Zoom video call. The morning of your appointment, you will receive an email from a Career Center staff member confirming your appointment that day. In the message, they will provide you with a telephone number for you to call at the time of your appointment. In addition, you will also be offered the option to do an online appointment via Zoom (no Zoom account required, if you can get online, you can use the platform). If you would prefer Zoom, simply reply sharing that is your preference, and you will receive a Zoom invite for the meeting. That's it. If you have documents to share, for example a resume, share that with the staff person who emails you in the morning, and they will explain how they prefer you to share your document(s).
Thank you to everyone for your patience while we reconfigure our services to best serve your needs.
