Appointments & Drop-in

Drop-in hours are normally 1-3pm Monday-Friday. Please call or check the schedule below for up-to-date changes before coming in.

We have many cancellations during Summer Term! 

Please check the calendar carefully before coming in. 

Career drop-ins are limited to quick resume and cover-letter critiques, learning how to use Career Connect, preparing for a career fair and/or LinkedIn/social media profile reviews. Career drop-ins are in 20 minute increments  (1pm is the first one, 2:40pm is the last one). They are first come, first serve. Sign up begins at 12:45pm. Please make an appointment for Career Counseling services such as career exploration, career searches and call ahead to find out about our interview assistance process.  We also offer a variety of workshops on career topics!

Appointments can book out several weeks in advance; please plan ahead.


Drop-in interactions typically last 15-20 minutes and are meant to be a starting point for a more in-depth conversation held during a scheduled appointment. Drop-in is available for all students/alumni needing assistance with career development or job search strategies and for undergraduates whose major is undecided/undeclared or who are considering a change of major. Please see below for services offered by appointment.

If you have a resume started or have gathered the necessary elements together, come in for professional assistance. Please see the calendar for dates and times. It is best to make an appointment or attend a workshop if you are starting from scratch.

1PM to 3PM Monday-Friday. Due to Orientation and other events, we sometimes change regularly scheduled drop-in hours: Please check the calendar below or call our office prior to coming to confirm our drop-in hours for the day you intend to visit.  

If you have questions about whether your needs are better addressed during drop-in hours or with an appointment, please call 503-725-4005.


Appointments are appropriate for current or prospective PSU students and alumni regarding career services or academic advising for undecided students. Come in for an appointment to discuss choosing a major or career, completing a petition (including Financial Aid petitions), navigating your return to PSU after an extended absence, making a long term academic plan, doing in-depth career exploration, learning job search strategies and skills, locating an internship, and assistance applying to graduate school, etc.

Appointments are generally 30 to 60 minutes depending on your needs and are scheduled Monday through Friday between 9am and 4pm. Appointments can book out several weeks in advance; please plan ahead.
