Career Counseling is the process of assisting undergraduate students in career decision-making, exploring employment opportunities, academic programs and experiential opportunities that will enhance their Emory experience in preparation for their next step in their career journey.


Document Critique services are provided to undergraduate students and alumni within 6 years of graduation from the Emory College of Arts and Sciences.


Drop-In Hours are available with our Peer Advisors for quick questions and resume critiques via 10-15-minute drop-ins (these can be unscheduled), Monday-Friday between Noon-4pm.


Fairs are events designed to connect students with hiring organizations (i.e. Career Fairs) or admissions representatives (i.e. Graduate School, Law School, etc.).


Graduate School Planning involves many factors, from choosing an area of study to preparing for and completing the application process. The Career Center provides several programs, services, and resources to assist you in collaboration with your faculty mentors in helping you decide which programs to pursue.


Mock Interviews are practice experiences which allow you an opportunity to create good habits, gain insight into your strengths and weakness, and build your confidence before the “real” interview.


Networking Events provide the opportunity to connect with those whose career paths inspire you, for being better informed about career choices, as well as building relationships that yield valuable advice, wisdom and guidance.


On Campus Recruiting allows organizations to visit Emory each year to recruit undergrads on campus, whether through on-campus interviews, special workshops, info sessions, or career fairs.

Peer Advising is offered during our drop-in hours for students who have quick questions or need a brief review of their documents (cover letter, resume, etc.).


Pre-Law Advising utilizes a holistic approach to pre-law preparation that is individualized by the student and is guided by the principles of career development.

Salary/Benefit Negotiations are discussions between you and an employer with the goal of reaching a mutually acceptable agreement on a rate of pay (salary) and/or benefits (vacation, healthcare, etc.).


Self-Assessments are offered to facilitate a student’s career exploration process. Currently our office uses the Strong Interest Inventory, Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, Knowdell Motivated Skills and Career Values Card Sorts.


Shadowing (Career Discovery Days) may help you identify majors/careers to pursue, further confirm your interest in a career, or it may steer you into a new career direction completely. It may also help you to decide whether a career may be a good fit for you based on your interests, skills and abilities. 


Workshops are focused on helping educate and train students on skill building experiences relevant for their professional development, topics include Resume writing, Interviewing, Internship search, etc.
