UVA Students who come to us get trustworthy guidance for each stage of their journey - whether it's figuring out what you really want to do, choosing your major, gaining work experience or prepping for that first interview. Career counseling can help guide you with every aspect of career exploration and development. Meet with an experienced career counselor in a one-on-one session. Schedule an appointment to clarify career goals, develop an action plan, or enhance search strategies for internships or jobs.

Make an Appointment

Make an appointment with a career counselor to discuss major or career choices, resume and cover letter writing techniques, internship and job search strategies, or other concerns. You may also meet with a career counselor to complete a mock interview or to interpret your Strong Interest Inventory or Myers Briggs Type Indicator assessment results. 

To make an appointment with a general career counselor or a graduate and professional school advisor:

  • Schedule an appointment online through CAVLink
  • Call (434) 924-8900
