This semester, Career Services launched open walk-in hours for students to access its staff without an appointment. There’s still plenty of time before the end of the semester to take advantage of them, so take a look!

On Tuesdays from now through April 12, Career Services will be camped out in LL419 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.

On Thursdays from now through April 14, Career Services will have open office hours in their office on the 8th floor of 33 W. 60th St (right across Columbus Ave.) from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Keep an eye out for upcoming events, as well!
