Talk with DCP career education staff on-campus (resuming with in-person instruction) or online. Discuss your career plan, the internship and job search process, graduate school planning, and review your resume and cover letter.

10 Minute On-Campus Drop-in Sessions: Resuming with the return of in-person instruction

  • Until in-person instruction resumes, please login to your UCI Handshake account to schedule an online appointment with career education staff.
  • When in-person instruction resumes, drop-ins will take place at the DCP patio, Monday through Thursday from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., and Fridays from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. Stop by with your quick career questions and meet with us!
  • Typical topics include an overview of our services, internship and job search tips, how to use Handshake, quick interview prep, questions about graduate and professional school admissions, and resume and cover letter reviews.
  • If we can’t address your concern in a quick drop-in, you can sign up for a scheduled appointment. In addition, we have many online tools available anytime, such as VMock for resume reviews, Big Interview for interview assistance, and Focus-2 Careers for career assessments.
  • If drop-ins are busy, we may stop accepting drop-in requests before 2pm.
