Our Teams

As Penn Career Services continues to operate virtually throughout the fall semester, we are still available to answer questions and assist you in using our services and resources. As we are experiencing higher than normal call volume, the quickest way to reach a Career Services team member is to email the Coordinator for your advising team.

Please see your advising team below for the appropriate contact information.

If you are unsure who to direct your question to, email careerservices@vpul.upenn.edu.
