How can I schedule an appointment with Career Education?

All appointments with members of the Career Education team are scheduled through Handshake, our digital career resource platform. Handshake allows students and alumnae access to Career Education's resources. Once you join Handshake using your Wellesley email and login information, you will be able to create appointments, access resources, and browse career opportunities. You can schedule an appointment by clicking "Career Center" on the top tab of the Handshake homepage and then selecting "Appointments."

From there, you can select the type of advisor with whom you would like to meet by selecting the “Schedule A New Appointment.” Selecting "General Career Advising" will pair you with one of our Alumnae Career Advisors, while "Career Advising By Field" will pair you with a Career Community Advisor specifically for your given field. Appointments can be conducted in person, over the phone, or over Skype or Google Hangouts.
