Start with a Career Planning Appointment

We encourage all students, regardless of year, to schedule a Career Planning Appointment through Gator CareerLink.  This is a 30-minute session where you can talk to a career planner about anything related to your career path. Whether you need help finding an internship, developing your resume, or just figuring out what’s next, a Career Planning Appointment is a great way to get started.

Career Planning Appointment Topics

There are seven topics that our staff are available to talk with you about:

  1. Choosing/Changing Your Major
  2. Choosing/Changing Your Career
  3. Graduate School Exploration or Preparation
  4. Developing your resume, CV, cover letter, personal statement or LinkedIn profile
  5. Finding an internship, externship or co-op
  6. Finding a full-time job
  7. Interviewing Strategies

Schedule a Career Planning Appointment

To schedule a Career Planning Appointment, follow these steps:

  • – Log in to Gator CareerLink
  • – Click on “Request a Career Planning Appointment”
  • – Select your appointment date, time, topic and click “Submit”
  • – You will receive a confirmation email when your request is approved

Career planning appointments are for UF students only and alumni are able to schedule appointments up until one year after graduation. When requesting your appointment, pay attention to the topic numbers (#’s) and locations available for those specific topics (this will be in parentheses next to their name). You can indicate if you need your appointment via phone or Skype.

Only one appointment can be requested at a time. Once you have visited with a Career Planning staff member, you will be able to make an additional appointment.
