Career Advising

Our office remains open, and advisors will continue to be available for video chat and voice call appointments through Handshake.

When it comes to career advising, we want to see you early and often. From discussing career goals to offering advice on networking, and from first résumé review to mid-career strategy setting, we provide personalized support to help you pursue a career that meets your goals, even as those goals change over time.

Schedule an Appointment

Undergraduate Students

Current students can schedule an appointment through Handshake or meet with an advisor via Zoom during our virtual drop-in advising hours every Wednesday from 3:30 to 5 pm. The password is advising.

Appointment Availability

Unfortunately, at certain points in the semester, our career advisors' schedules can fill up several weeks in advance. Please plan ahead: don't wait until the day before an application is due or the last month of your last semester to contact us. If you need immediate assistance, please stop by our weekly drop-in hours. If you cannot make it to drop-ins, you may email us at siscareer@american.edu, and we will do what we can to help.

SIS Career No-Show Policy

Outside of sudden illness or other emergency, we expect students to honor their commitments and show up for the appointments and events they sign up for. Students who accumulate three (3) no-shows will be suspended from further use of our services and must schedule a meeting with the office director to discuss their absences and regain access.
