All degree-seeking, currently enrolled students and alumni are eligible for Career Services whether you take classes at the Pensacola or Emerald Coast campuses, or take online courses.
There are two ways students and alumni can meet one-on-one with our career coaches: scheduled, hour-long appointments and drop in hours.
Scheduled appointments are made in advance to allow career coaches to adequately prepare to meet with students and alumni. Same day appointments may be scheduled based on availability for all appointment types except mock interviews. To schedule an appointment, contact our office at 850-474-2254 or use this form to request an appointment. Phone and Skype appointments are available for this type of meeting.
Drop In Hours
Career Services offers drop in hours Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Students and alumni may check in at the front desk and spend 15 minutes with the next available career coach to discuss resume, cover letter and job search questions. (Note: Career Services will maintain Drop In Hour services during University time periods in which classes are being offered. For other periods, including but not limited to holidays, Spring Vacation, Winter Break, Thanksgiving Holidays, and periods between terms, Career Services will temporarily discontinue Drop In Hour services. However, in cases of emergency and as personnel scheduling allows, Career Services may accommodate students and alumni on a case-by-case basis.)
If you arrive 15 minutes past your scheduled appointment time, it will be necessary for you to reschedule. If you are unable to keep your appointment or no longer need to be seen, please call within 48 hours to cancel or reschedule your appointment so that we can offer this time to another student.
If you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, please contact Career Services 48 hours prior to your appointment time at 850-474-2254. A “no show” letter will be sent if 48 hour cancellation or rescheduling policy is not met. Once a student receives two "no show" letters for a semester, he or she will no longer be able to schedule an appointment for the remainder of the semester. However, the student can still take advantage of drop in hours.
