Meeting with your career counselor is a great way to receive guidance on a wide range of career-related topics such as: career exploration, changing majors, developing career plans, creating a resume, finding internships and full-time jobs, effective networking, developing graduate school plans, and making successful career transitions.
We offer both in-person and virtual career counseling drop-in hours and appointments.
Students may select their preferred appointment medium when scheduling their appointment.
To make an appointment, log into MustangJOBS and click “Career Center” on the top-right of the screen and then select “Appointments” or call (805) 756-2501.
Scheduled Appointments are your opportunity to meet individually with your Career Counselor and address your specific needs. Appointments range from 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the topic.
