At the beginning of the fall semester, we are offering Labs on particular career topics. During a lab, you can stay to work on your resume, cover letter or networking skills and receive feedback as you work. While Drop-in Advising usually lasts about 15 minutes per student, in a Lab you can stay for a couple of hours to make substantial progress.
