Career Advising

We're remote and ready to help.

There are a variety of remote options for DePaul students and alumni to connect with the Career Center team for career guidance and insight. You can schedule an appointment with an advisor in Handshake, drop-in with a peer career coach in Zoom, or submit your resume or cover letter for an email review.

Virtual and Phone Appointments

You can schedule a virtual or phone career advising appointment through Handshake. Appointments can take place via phone or Zoom. If you choose a Zoom appointment, the advisor will email you a Zoom link at the time of your appointment (you will not need to log in to any platform). If you choose phone, please be sure to provide your preferred phone number when scheduling your appointment.
