Schedule an Appointment

Current students can schedule appointments with Career & Academic Advisors to discuss majors and careers, jobs, internships, and graduate school.

  • Login to your Handshake account. Click Career Center > Appointments > Schedule a New Appointment. 
  • Note: If you are an Undeclared student with an advisor in CAP and you have advising questions, choose “Meet with my CAP Academic Advisor” as the appointment type and your advisor’s name as the counselor.
  • Most appointments are offered in the CAP Office (SSC 3210) but some are elsewhere on campus, so pay attention to the location.
  • Call 540-568-6555 if you have difficulty scheduling your appointment, or if you would like to schedule a phone, email, or Skype appointment.

Come to Walk-In Hours with Career Educators

Career Educators are trained volunteer student staff that are available during the academic year to assist fellow students with first-time resume reviews, getting started on Handshake, or learning about resources available through our office. You can schedule an appointment with Career Educators through Handshake, or simply drop in with your resume during designated walk-in hours, which are posted each semester on our Events Calendar.
