Syracuse University Career Services is dedicated to providing students with seamless support throughout their career development journey. One of its newest ways of offering students guidance and assistance is virtually.

Within our virtual campus community, we still offer great services such as weekly drop-ins providing one-on-one support in addition to résumé and cover letter review,” says Adam Capozzi, interim director of career services, assessment and student success. “Our new virtual highlights include sharing important career-focused content through the Career Coffee Chat video series and interactive webinars with Syracuse University alumni. We encourage the campus community to visit our website and Handshake frequently for new resources.”
On Tuesdays from 2 to 3:30 p.m. and Thursdays from 3:30 to 5 p.m., students are encouraged to explore Virtual Drop-In Sessions. During the 15-minute sessions, Syracuse University Career Services staff are available to help answer a variety of questions regarding coursework, internships, interviews, employment negotiation and other topics. Students seeking longer conversations may schedule a meeting with Syracuse University Career Services staff to dive deeper into career topics of choice.
Students pursuing cover letter and/or resume support are encouraged to email email@example.com, attach their documents and in the subject line list “Document Review-[Your Name].” Constructive feedback will be provided. Additionally, students are invited to join members of the team as they host special guests, discuss timely topics and share helpful resources during the Career Coffee Chat video series.
Students are also highly encouraged to connect with their home school or college’s career and advising office for virtual services, programs and resources.
