Career Center Refresh in December

The Career Center is getting a refresh, with new carpet being installed December 4-16 (mostly during final exams). While the work is being done, the Career Center will continue to operate remotely. Career Center phones and email will be staffed and career advising appointments will take place via Skype and can be scheduled through Handshake. The Office of Merit Awards, located in Letts Lower Level, is unaffected, and will operate normally. And as always, our website has a wealth of career information and resources for you.

We look forward to welcoming you to our enhanced space after we reopen on December 17. If you have questions, please feel free to contact us at 202.885.1804 or careercenter@american.edu.

How to Find the Career Center

The Career Center is most easily accessed from the Butler Pavilion elevator (as shown in the video), Bender Arena garage (level 5), or staircase connecting Butler Pavilion and the Mary Graydon Center. Enter Butler Pavilion from the Quad and take the elevator by the Campus Store to level 5. Or access the stairs connecting MGC and Butler from the Tavern on the first floor of MGC, take the stairs up one level and enter Butler Pavilion, then take the flight of stairs directly in front of you right up to the Career Center front doors.
