September 20, 2023

We’re excited to see the campus bustling again, and we’re looking forward to connecting with you this academic year. Schedule a career coaching appointment and/or attend one of our events and fairs this semester. 

Career coaches are available to meet with you for career exploration, resume/cover letter reviews, personal statement reviews, mock interviews, job/internship search strategies, preparing for health professional or graduate school, and more! 

Graduate School Application Season Support

Graduate school application season is here, and whether you are actively applying, working toward that goal, or exploring if graduate school is right for you, the CBS Career Team can help you prepare! Most graduate school programs are looking for a couple of years of relevant experience (likely research), letters of recommendation, a resume/CV, and a personal statement. 

Our career team can help you identify strategies for finding relevant experiences, brainstorm letter writers, review your resume/CV and personal statements, and figure out where to apply. 

Upcoming Graduate School Events and Fairs

In addition to our one-on-one services, there are a variety of events taking place this fall that will benefit students exploring and applying to graduate school. Make sure to register for these exciting events and come see us to let us know how we can support you with your graduate school goals!
