Drop-in Appointments

The Center for Career and Professional Development also offers DROP-IN HOUR service which are 15 minute appointments offered Monday - Friday from 2:00pm - 4:00pm. These appointments are staffed by our trained Peer Career Mentor team and are useful for those students or alumni who have (1) never written a resume/cover letter before or (2) have already had a draft of their resume/cover letter reviewed by a career professional. Drop-In Hours should not be used as a substitute for a 45 minute appointment. Drop-in hours can be used for the following:

  • Resume Review
  • Cover Letter Review
  • Quick Interview Tips and Questions
  • How to use Job Cat 2.0
  • How to use Vault

Virtual Appointments

Off-campus students, graduate students or any student at Biltmore Park, distance learners, alumni, or students at home between sessions can still access all of our services, not just on the website but online in real-time. Please identify in your GradesFirst appointment that you would like a Skype for Business session. Be sure to include your Skype ID. For alumni please call the office at 828-227-7133 to set-up an appointment.
