Virtual Services

Guide to Virtual Services

Our team recognizes your life as a student looks different these days. The changing economy means the job/internship search is changing, too. We’re here to support you in the weeks ahead and look forward to connecting with you through our virtual services. These resources are available to all students in the College of Arts + Sciences and for up to three years after a student has graduated.

Below, you will see the virtual services available to College of Arts + Sciences students. However, if you are new to planning a career, you should start with our Career Planner for College of Arts + Sciences students and by making an appointment with a career coach. You may also wish to view our resource library for more resources on these topics.
