Drop-in Advising


drop-in advising, no appointment necessary

Why go?

Drop-in Advising is the best way to get immediate and ongoing feedback on your resumes and other documents.  You can also use Drop-in Advising to ask any quick career questions, learn about the Career Center, and our resources.  You'll spend 10 to 15 minutes with an adviser, so don't hesitate to organize your thoughts in advance to make the most of the time!

How it works

Bring your printed documents to be reviewed
(In Smith Warehouse, there is an ePrint station in Bay 12, 2nd Floor and flex ePrint in Bay 6, 1st Floor). 
Sign in when you arrive -first come, first served.

You can also access our online tools for building your resume or cover letter

Open Career Advising Studio

While fall and spring classes are in session, Engineering Master's students can use Open Career Advising Studio times to stop in for quick feedback or advice, and even better, come together to work on your internship, job, or PhD program search while we're available to answer your questions.  

Generally, these are located in 3rd floor FCIEMAS Atrium, 1-4pm Monday to Thursday through September 26th. For the remainder of the semester, Open Career Advising studio will take place Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday of each week.   

You may come for a few minutes or the entire scheduled time. No registration is required, and like all of our services, it is free. The Duke Events Calendar has accurate information about the details for each day.

Feedback & Advice Opportunities

Engineering Master's students also have opportunities to individual feedback Mondays to Fridays each week in 15 or 30 minute meetings -register using CareerConnections Advising tool (quick start guide & video tutorial).
