How to Access Drop-Ins

No appointment is needed. Fill out a brief intake form and then get connected to a CLA Career Services staff member who will assist you. Drop-ins are typically 10-15 minutes long.

    In order to connect the most quickly for virtual drop-ins, please install the Zoom for Meetings Desktop App or the Zoom Mobile App. It is very easy to install! View the installation instructions.

    While career counselors can help with many questions, remember that the CLA Career Readiness Guide covers, in depth, all of the career-related topics you’ll need to consider as a liberal arts student. Access the guide online, or pick up a copy in CLA Career Services or in one of the CLA Academic Advising offices.
