Schedule an Appointment with a Career Coach

On behalf of the Career & Internship Center, we would like to thank you for your continued engagement with our services and staff.  We understand that not all job searches require the same amount of time and effort for all people, and our coaches are happy to work with students multiple times during and after their time enrolled as a student here.

During high traffic times of the quarter, our coaches may have limited availability to meet with an individual student more than a couple of times; this ensures that our office is accessible to all students. Thank you for your understanding. Beyond appointments, we encourage students to check out our DIY resources, workshops, career fairs, and other campus events.

Career Coaching Appointments

Career coaching (30 min) appointments are available to current, degree-seeking undergraduate & graduate students at UW-Seattle and recent graduates from UW-Seattle who have received a degree in the past three years (36 months).

Do you have general or specific career questions? Are you feeling stuck? Appointments are conversations where you and a coach discuss what’s on your mind.  Common topics include:

    • choosing a major
    • career exploration
    • networking tips
    • resume/cover letter review
    • job & internship search strategies
    • mock interviews
    • applying to graduate/professional school (this includes personal statement reviews)
