Individual Career Counseling

The CSO's experienced counseling team, consisting of licensed attorneys, offers individual counseling sessions to actively assist alumni in focusing on employment options that best match their interests and skills. In addition to covering traditional job search skills such as resume and cover letter critiques and interview preparation, CSO counselors help alumni create a tailored career search strategy to achieve their personal career planning and professional development goals.

Alumni may request an appointment by email the CSO at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

At certain times of the year, the CSO staff’s ability to accommodate requests for individual alumni career counseling sessions may be limited due to major CSO, Law School or University events.
