Out of an abundance of caution, the University of Florida will be closed Wednesday, Sept. 28 through Friday, Sept. 30, because of Hurricane Ian. Express Drop-In will be canceled as well. The university expects to reopen and resume classes and normal campus operations on Saturday, Oct. 1.
Virtual Career Planning Appointments
Career Planning Appointments are 30-minute individual sessions with a career coach. In a Career Planning Appointment, you can talk to your career coach about anything related to your career.

- Choosing/Changing Your Major
- Exploring Career Options
- Finding/Discussing Your Career Interests, Strengths and Values

- Developing Your Resume, Cover Letter, Personal Statement or E-Portfolio
- Graduate School Exploration/Preparation
- Finding/Preparing for a Full-Time Job

You can schedule your Career Planning Appointment through Gator CareerLink.
