What You Can Expect During An Advising Session

Sessions are meant to open a dialogue to promote awareness of steps you can take to find professional success during and after college.

Advisors may ask for information about your major, class standing, and what you are most interested in discussing during your session.

You can expect to explore professional career, internship or graduate school opportunities, create action items regarding your career and internship process, or have your career-related questions answered.

Make sure to come prepared with questions or materials such as resumes, cover letters, or personal statements for review.
