Virtual Career Support

Appointments

Our team is available for virtual pre-scheduled individual and group appointments via Zoom video conference or phone call to discuss your job search, graduate school planning, major and career decision-making, and other career-related needs. 

Have a quick, career-related question and do not want to schedule a full appointment? Stop by our office at 158 LSU Student Union on weekdays between 8:30 a.m.—4 p.m. for a quick, in-person answer about our services and events or to get help finding information you need. Drop-Ins for Spring 2021 will end on May 7, but one-on-one appointments may be scheduled after this date.
