Same-Day Advising Options!

Peer Career Advisor Virtual Pop-Ins 

Peer Career Advisors are a team of undergraduate students who have been specially trained to help answer questions about resumes & cover letters, Handshake, job & internship search, networking and more. Pop-ins are 15-minute appointments. Same day advising is available to undergraduate students in Handshake by selecting “Pop-in: Peer Career Advisors” as the appointment type. Students are allowed to do one pop-in per day.

Pre-Health Peer Coach Virtual Drop-Ins

The Pre-Health Peer Coach is here to answer basic questions and help you identify resources to make the most of your unique path. Schedule an appointment or a drop-in via Handshake to talk about your classes, extracurricular activities and how to develop your interest in health care at Penn.

Same Day Advisor Virtual Drop-ins

Drop-ins are designed to have your “quick questions” answered by a career advisor during these 15-minute sessions. Advisors can help with everything from resume and cover letter reviews to more complex career-related issues like prepping for an interview, negotiating offers, or starting career exploration activities in these quick sessions.  Please email your advisor any relevant materials as soon as possible once your appointment has been approved. **All drop-ins can be requested and scheduled through Handshake starting at 9:15 AM (EST) on the day of the drop-in. If you choose Online Video Conference, you will receive a confirmation from Handshake with a Zoom link (please check your spam just in case!)
