Appointments and Drop In Hours

Scheduling Appointments

Students and recent alumni can schedule appointments online 24/7 using Handshake, by calling 503.943.7201 or stopping by Franz 110 during office hours. Alumni without Handshake access can call our office to schedule. We offer both phone and video appointments for your convenience!

For best availability, we recommend scheduling at least a week in advance of your desired appointment time. We look forward to meeting you! 

Cancellations & Late Arrivals

Please arrive on time for your scheduled appointment. If you are unable to keep your appointment, please cancel at least 24 hours in advance by calling 503.943.7201 or emailing career@up.edu.

If a student or alumni arrives more than 15 minutes late, the staff member may request that you reschedule.

Drop-In Hours

Are you unsure where to get started? Have a quick question about an internship or job application? Seeking feedback on your resume or cover letter review? Wondering how to prepare for or follow up on an interview? Want to connect with the Career Education Center same-day, without scheduling an appointment? 

Current students are encouraged to utilize daily Drop-In Hours for quick questions and conversations with a member of the Career Education Center team!
