Two Ways to Get One-on-One Assistance: Drop-Ins & Appointments

Drop-Ins with an undergraduate Peer Career Educator

Mondays-Fridays | 1-3:30pm | University Career Center (3100 Hornbake Library, S Wing)
**Drop-ins will resume on Monday, January 30, 2023 for the spring semester.**

Students can drop-in to the University Career Center for a quick, 15-minute conversation with an undergraduate Peer Career Educator (PCE).  Work with a PCE on the following:

  • Resume and cover letter reviews
  • Basic job/internship search strategies
  • Careers4Terps best practices and resources
  • Basic networking strategies (LinkedIn, Terrapins Connect)
  • Interview preparation

Peer Career Educators support undergraduate students of all majors.  Graduate students are encouraged to schedule a 30-minute career advising appointment.  Drop-ins will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis and it is not guaranteed you can be seen if drop-ins are especially busy that day. 

Schedule a 30-Minute Appointment with a Career Advisor

Career advising appointments are available for current UMD students (undergrad, master’s and doctoral) and alumni less than one year post-graduation. You can choose in-person or virtual appointments.

  2. Click on “Counseling” on the top navigation bar.
  3. Choose your appointment topic and hit “Check Availability.” Try not to put too many filters in your search or else your results will be limited.
