Do you have questions about internships, graduate school, or your future career? Or are you unsure what your first step should be? Speak with a career coach in-person or online via Zoom, Monday - Friday from 10:00 am - 4:00 pm.

Meet with one of our highly trained career coaches in-person or virtually for support and guidance individually or in a small group during our drop-in advising hours, Monday - Friday from 10:00 am - 4:00 pm. Our career coaches help students further develop their career knowledge, self-awareness, and confidence to make the most informed career decisions possible.

Here are some themes that can be discussed with a coach:

  • Explore skills and interests, using the Strong Interest Inventory and Career Explorer by Sokanu Career Assessments
  • Identify values and goals and how they relate to career paths
  • Learn what you can do with your major
  • Get assistance with the graduate school application process
  • Locate resources within your industry or area of interest
  • Learn how to network in your field
  • Discuss how to search for jobs and internships

Practice Interviews

Were you invited to interview for your dream internship/job? Are you asking yourself the question, “Now what?” Stop by Toppel to meet with one of our advisors and go over tips to prepare for your interview!

We can also do a practice interview with you where we simulate an interview setting and go through questions and provide feedback during an hour session. The session is broken down into two parts. First, we will go through a 25-30 minute interview with tailored questions followed by a 20-30 minute coaching session that will provide you an opportunity to learn what you excelled in and areas that you need to continue working on to develop your interviewing skills. Don’t wait! Meet with our advisors and gain the experience and confidence needed to shine at your next interview. Schedule a practice interview with one of our staff by stopping by our front desk or visiting us now through Zoom.
