Office of Career Engagement Updates

The Kogod Office of Career Engagement will continue to support our students’ career development while maintaining their safety and well-being by moving our services online. To best provide accessibility to our services and resources over the next few weeks, we will implement the following changes:

All career advising appointments will be conducted virtually. Handshake appointment confirmations will contain a Zoom link for your meeting. If you have difficulty locating the Zoom link or scheduling an appointment, contact kogodcareers@american.edu for assistance.

Drop-in hours will continue virtually, please email kogodcareers@american.edu for the Zoom link to the appropriate advisor.

Undergraduate drop-in hours: 1 to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, 8 to 10 p.m. Monday and Wednesday

MS drop-in hours: 12 to 2 p.m. on Wednesday

We are moving upcoming workshops online and will update the event details in Handshake accordingly.

Our Employer Relations team continues to work with employers recruiting Kogod students. Handshake will be regularly updated with available job and internship opportunities, and we will continue to host information sessions, panels, and other recruiting-related events virtually.

We appreciate your understanding and patience as we work through this together. Please check Handshake frequently for updates on programming and opportunities. We encourage students to continue submitting applications and expanding and engaging your professional networks. If you need help adapting your career strategy or have any other questions or concerns, please email kogodcareers@american.edu or schedule an appointment on Handshake.
