Here are some tips to help you make the most of your 15 minutes based on what you need assistance with:
Online Drop-In Sessions
We offer 15-minute, drop-in virtual advising sessions to answer quick career questions or offer suggestions on application materials. No appointment needed! (If you want more in-depth assistance requiring longer than 15 minutes, we recommend you make an online appointment.)
Drop-in hours: Mondays – Thursdays from 2 – 4 p.m. Mountain Time, during the fall and spring semesters when classes are in session
How to Access Online Drop-Ins
When you are ready to join a drop-in session, click the link below that corresponds with what day it is. From there, log into your Handshake account to get the Zoom link.
Once you enter the Zoom meeting, a Career Services staff member will move you from the waiting room to a one-on-one meeting when it’s your turn. Students will be seen on a first-come, first-served basis, and wait times may vary.
Mondays | 2 – 4 p.m. (Mountain Time)
Tuesdays | 2 – 4 p.m. (Mountain Time)
Wednesdays | 2 – 4 p.m. (Mountain Time)
Thursdays | 2 – 4 p.m. (Mountain Time)
Whether you’re looking for a part-time job or a career position, we can help. Our job search process virtual workshop or job search process handout will help you get started in your search for career positions. For part-time jobs, check out our handout on getting a part-time job. Bring your questions!
Have questions about how internships work at Boise State, or how to find one? Start with our internship handout, then we can help you with questions about what kinds of internships you could do, where to look, and how to secure one. We can also help you explore other types of experiential learning opportunities, such as Work U, volunteering, or involvement in student or professional organizations.
Grad School Personal Statements
Bring a copy of your personal statement along with the specific instructions and prompts you were given. We can provide suggestions about content and organization, but please note that for writing style, grammar, or proofreading assistance, the Writing Center may be a better resource for you.
Check out the many career exploration and career planning resources we have available, including our career planning handout, virtual workshops, and web resources such as What Can I Do With This Major and Vault. We can help you start to work on your career preparation plan. If you are looking for assistance with career exploration or to review your PathwayU results, please note that you’ll want to schedule an appointment for that.
