Advising Teams

Below please find the Career Advisors grouped by school. Career Services advisors can discuss a range of topics with you from helping you to think through and clarify your career goals, to perfecting your resume or interviewing skills, to applying to graduate or professional school.  Alumni may schedule up to three appointments per year with a Penn Career Services advisor from their school.  Schedule an appointment on Handshake or by contacting the Coordinator for each team listed below.
