Career Coaching Appointments

All degree-seeking, currently enrolled students and alumni are eligible for Career Development and Community Engagement (CDCE) services, whether you learn on campus or online.

General Information

There are two ways students and alumni can meet one-on-one with our career coaches: through scheduled appointments or during drop-in hours.

ALL services, including scheduled and drop-in appointments, are only available virtually. If you have any questions please contact our office at 850.474.2254 or and someone will follow up with you.

Scheduled Appointments

Scheduled appointments are made in advance to allow career coaches to adequately prepare to meet with students and alumni. These appointments are ideal for in-depth topics that require more than 20 minutes to adequately cover, such as:

  • Mock Interviews
  • Co-ops
  • Personal Statement/Letters of Intent for Graduate School
  • Salary Negotiation
  • Major/Career Exploration

Although appointments are scheduled for 30-minutes, in some cases additional time may be needed. Selecting the most relevant topic when scheduling your appointment will assist in keeping the meeting on time.

To request an appointment, contact our office at 850.474.2254 or schedule an appointment online through Handshake. For detailed instructions on scheduling appointments through Handshake visit the UWF Handshake Page.

Drop-In Hours

CDCE offers virtual drop-in hours Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Students and alumni may spend 15 minutes with the next available career coach to discuss the following types of topics:

  • Resumes
  • Cover Letters
  • Job Search Strategies (Part-time and Full-time Professional Opportunities)
  • Internships
  • Informational Interviewing
  • Job Shadowing
  • Interviewing Tips

CDCE will maintain drop-in hour services during university time periods in which classes are being offered. For other periods, including but not limited to spring vacation, winter break, Thanksgiving and other holidays, and periods between terms, CDCE may temporarily discontinue drop-in services. However, in some situations and as personnel scheduling allows, CDCE may accommodate students and alumni on a case-by-case basis.

Arriving Late/Cancellations/Rescheduling

If you arrive 15 minutes or more 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 850.474.2254 within 48 hours to cancel or reschedule your appointment so that we can offer this time to another student. Failure to do so will result in a "No-Show."
