Update about meetings with Career Advising

From mid-August to Oct.3, the career advisors are very busy in 1-1 meetings with MS4s and prepping for fall advising. The team is not able to meet with other students during this time.

If you have an urgent question, please email and a career advisor will get back to you soon. You are welcome to bring quick questions to Office Hours – but if your question can wait until after Oct. 3, that would help free up time for MS4s and the career advisors. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

“Tip of the Month” from the Career Advising Student Advisory Board

The Career Tip of the Month will return in September. 

In case you missed it, here is the previous issue of the student newsletter for MS3s.


Have a wonderful week!
