Career Lab is an open, welcoming space where current undergraduate and graduate/professional students can drop in for career help. You don't need an appointment. You don't even have to know exactly what you need. Just show up, stay as long as you like, ask questions and get answers!
Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to closing to ensure we have adequate time to assist you.
