Join The Career Coaching Community

What is the CCC?

This is a new exclusive community that grants students access to one-on-one career coaching opportunities throughout the academic year.

CCC Membership Benefits

Meeting with a career coach will provide you with  individual attention and support that is specific to your career journey. Coaches can help you: 

  • Better understand and communicate your skills, interests, and values
  • Improve your resume and cover letter writing 
  • Prepare for networking opportunities and informational interviews 
  • Navigate job offer negotiations 

and so much more!

How do I join the CCC?

Attend one of two of our introductory webinars: 

Our introductory events will kick off during the week of September 4th and registration links can be found here or on Handshake (via Events tab).

At the conclusion of each introductory event, you’ll be provided with guidance on scheduling future career coaching appointments and a downloadable copy of the presentation, complete with valuable resource links for your reference.

Note: If you have already met with a career coach previously, you have already been granted membership and should schedule your coaching appointments as usual.

Career Coaching Overview

In addition to our skills workshops and webinars, we offer individual career coaching services. Our career coaches are here to provide you with the tools and support you need to boost your career search and increase your chances of landing a job or internship.

All coaching sessions EXCLUSIVE to Career Coaching Community members and are 30 minutes in duration. Each appointment is scheduled through Handshake.

Coaching Expectations

Students are expected to take an active part in their career planning and preparation for each of their coaching sessions to ensure they make the most of their 30-minute appointment. We encourage you to review our preparation tips below.

How To Make The Most Of Your Coaching Appointment

Review the following information to ensure your individual coaching session is valuable:

  • Complete your pre-coaching survey with as much detail as possible.
    • The more detail you provide, the more we are able to prepare for your session.
  • Upload a copy of your most current resume or CV to the “My Documents” tab of your Handshake profile prior to your coaching session.
    • Don’t worry about it being perfect or fully up-to-date, we just want to have it as a starting point for our meeting.
    • If you do not have a resume or are looking for a resume template, you can start here.
  • Review our Virtual Career Toolkit to familiarize yourself with the career management resources available to you.
    • This will ensure the time spent with your coach is dedicated to topics specific to your career path and search strategies.
  • If you need to cancel your appointment, please do so in Handshake to ensure your time slot can be offered to another student.
    • Coaching sessions are in high demand, but we understand if your schedule changes! You can always reschedule.
