Career Studio


Get Started

Coaching Appointments

The Career Studio offers limited phone and video appointments for students who are unable to drop-in to the Studio in person.

Students can make these appointments on Handshake. Click here for instructions on how to make an appointment with the Career Studio.

In-Person Drop-in Mentoring

The Career Studio is closed during university holidays and breaks, including summer.  Students needing career services during these times can schedule an appointment with a CDC Career Counselor.

Drop-in mentoring is available Monday through Thursday from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm, no appointment necessary. Just stop by the Career Studio and sign into the iPad to get started!

Preparing to Visit the Career Studio

Resumes

  • It is easier for Career Peer Mentors to edit a resume that already has some content. Before visiting the Studio, put together a draft resume using one of the resume templates the CDC offers.
  • Have your resume draft readily available for a Career Peer Mentor. Either print out a copy or have it in your email drafts ready to send to the Career Peer Mentor when you arrive.
  • Know that one time at the Career Studio is likely not enough. We highly recommend students visit us multiple times to perfect a resume. Students can also make an appointment with a CDC Career Counselor for more in-depth critiques after visiting the Career Studio.

Mock Interviews

  • Students do not need to bring anything to a mock interview; the Career Peer Mentors will provide a mock interview grading rubric to you.

About the career studio

The Career Studio is a service provided by the UA Career Development Center. Staffed by highly-trained Career Peer Mentors, these undergraduate and graduate students represent multiple academic programs on campus. The Studio provides an open-concept environment where UA students and alumni can drop in for general career-related services without an appointment. Students can receive basic one-on-one and group advising/coaching for some of the CDC's most popular services, including resume and cover letter reviews, mock interviews, LinkedIn profile reviews, and more!
