Career Checkup

These 25-minute appointments are designed for UNIV 101/201 students. However, they're helpful for all students, especially if you're new to NIU. We'll give you personalized career planning recommendations.

Career Advising

These longer (50-minute) appointments can be customized to meet your needs. At this comprehensive session, we can cover choosing majors and careers, taking career tests, building workplace skills, planning a job/internship search and much more.

LinkedIn Profile Review

A LinkedIn profile can be more important than a resume. We offer 50-minute appointments in Microsoft Teams where you can review your profile with our expert staff. For help using LinkedIn, visit the Career Services Blackboard Learning Lab (under Organizations) or attend a workshop.

Mock Interview

Have an interview coming up, or looking for feedback about your interview skills? Schedule a 50-minute mock interview with a career advisor. We’ll customize the session to your specific situation. To practice interview skills on your own, without feedback, explore additional interview resources

Resume Review

We offer a limited number of 20-minute resume review appointments in Microsoft Teams. Before scheduling your appointment, learn about resume writing at the Career Services Blackboard Learning Lab (under Organizations), attend a workshop and use our sample resumes and handouts.
