Career Counseling Appointments | Walk-In Meetings | Behavioral Mock Interviews | Résumé and Cover Letter Critiques


Career Counseling Appointments
To ensure counselor availability and adequate time for counseling sessions, students are encouraged to make appointments for career counseling in advance of their visit to the Career Center. Please note that student appointments are scheduled in 45-minute increments. If a student is 15 minutes or more late for a scheduled appointment, the student must reschedule the appointment for another date. Students can coordinate their appointments directly with the appropriate career counselor:

Architecture and Art Career Counseling
Robert Thill
thill@cooper.edu
212.353.4384

Engineering Career Counseling
Jolie Harris
jolie@cooper.edu
212.353.4112


Walk-In Meetings
Students may visit their career counselor unannounced, but are expected to collaborate in giving first priority to those students with scheduled appointments.


Behavioral Mock Interviews
Students are encouraged to perform behavioral mock interviews to refine their interview skills. Interviewing is a competence that is always developing and deserves practice whether embarking on a first interview or tenth interview. Schedule a one-hour professional interview with a career counselor to exchange feedback and arrive at interviews prepared and with the utmost confidence.


Résumé and Cover Letter Critiques
Bring application materials, consisting of a résumé and cover letter, to a career counselor for recommendations on how to best communicate academic and work experience. To maximize the effectiveness of the résumé critique, review the following links in advance:
