Same Day Advising

Undergraduate 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. Virtual Pop-ins are 15-minute appointments. Same day advising is available in Handshake by selecting “Peer Career Advising” 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 will be held remotely and can be requested and scheduled through Handshake starting at 9:15 AM (EST) on the day of the drop-in. Please include your phone number in the drop-in request. Your advisor will call you at your appointment time if you choose the telephone option, or you will receive a Zoom or Bluejeans link via email if you choose Online Video Conference.**
