What is Career Counseling?

On-Call Counseling

On-call counseling is a time to meet one-on-one with a Career Counselor to have your quick career-related questions answered. This can range from reviewing an email to send an employer to figuring out where to even start in the career counseling process (and everything in between). Counselors are available via Zoom on a first-come, first-serve basis. If the counselor is meeting with someone else, you will be placed into a waiting room until it's your turn. 

There will be no on-call counseling hours for the month of July. You can still make an appt with a career counselor by contacting carserv@d.umn.edu.

Career Counseling

Professionally trained counselors are available to assist currently enrolled students and UMD alumni in all aspects of the career/life planning process, from choosing a major to carrying out a job search or applying to graduate or professional school. Counselors can assist you in gathering information about yourself and occupations. They can then help you relate the information to career choice.

Confidential help is available to:

  1. choose courses, majors, and careers
  2. identify occupations
  3. identify internship possibilities
  4. learn job search skills
  5. locate employment opportunities
  6. decide on a graduate or professional school program
  7. apply to graduate or professional school

To make an appointment, call 218-726-7985 or visit 22 Solon Campus Center.
