How to Start a Virtual Drop-In 

1. Visit our general website at career.virginia.edu during Mon-Fri, 12-4 PM (EDT). 

2. You will see an orange Rotunda icon (like the image on the left) in the bottom right corner with "Virtual Advising" underneath. 

3. Click Virtual Advising and fill out the short form with your name and your email address. You will then be connected to a greeter in real-time!

4. Type a short note about what you’re seeking in the chat. [Career advising, Industry-specific advising, Pre-health advising, Career exploration, Resume or Cover Letter Review, Job Search Tips, or any specific advice you are seeking.]

5. You will then be transferred to the career counselor available at that time.

Once a career counselor begins chatting with you, you are in a Virtual Drop-In! From there, you and your counselor are able to Zoom each other when the career counselor provides their Zoom link. Learn more about industry-specific advising hours and more other great services we offer.
