Walk-in counseling

Walk-in counseling

The Center for Career and Calling offers daily walk-in appointments for all undergraduate SPU students. These appointments are peer-to-peer, meaning you will be meeting with our highly trained student workers. Appointments range anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour, depending on your needs. Topics covered during walk-in appointments include:

  • Résumé Review
  • Cover Letter Review
  • LinkedIn Profile Review
  • Falcon Connect Assistance

In Autumn Quarter 2021, we plan to again offer a mix of in-person and virtual walk-in appointments. Our office has open tables and computers for you to use. If you would like a résumé or cover letter reviewed in person, please bring a printed version with you.

The current Spring 2021 walk-in schedule (all virtual):

  • Mondays:
    • 9:30–11 a.m; 11:45 a.m.–1 p.m.; 1:15–3:30 p.m.
