Drop-ins are meant to be utilized for quick (10-15 minute) career related questions about your resume and/or cover letter, interviewing, Handshake, etc. Students will be seen on a first-come, first-served basis during drop-ins. Students may have their resume and cover letters reviewed during drop-in advising times as well, or may opt to send their application documents in to our electronic review service (below).
