• Career Advising

Career Advising

The Career Center at FSU provides both individual career advising and counseling to all FSU students, alumni, and members of the Tallahassee community completely free of charge. These services are provided by Career Center staff members who serve as individual Career Advisors. Our staff members are competent, trained, and committed to providing quality assistance to FSU students engaging in career planning and decision-making. Our services are offered in three formats based on individual need:

Drop-In Career Advising

Drop-in advising requires no appointment and generally consists of a 10-20 minute individual session with a Career Advisor. This option is the fastest, simplest way for students to get timely career planning assistance. Simply come to the 1st floor of The Career Center, sign in at the desk, and a friendly Career Advisor will see you as quickly as possible. Career Advisors can assist you with topics such as choosing a major, resume and cover letter writing, personal statement review, interviewing tips, networking, career-decision making, launching a job/internship campaign, negotiating and evaluating offers, and more.

The Career Center offers both in-person and virtual drop-in career advising hours, and virtual career advising with career liaisons through NoleNetwork appointments. If you need further assistance, please contact career-advisors@fsu.edu The Career Center will be closed for Thanksgiving Break from November 23rd, thru November 25th.  The regular advising schedule will resume on Monday, November 28th.

If you are interested in receiving individual career counseling services, please visit The Career Center during drop-in career advising hours. Your Career Advisor will work with you to determine whether an individual appointment would be beneficial.

Embedded Career Liaisons

The Career Center is pleased to offer industry-specific career advising to FSU students in partnership with FSU academics. Career Liaisons are Career Center employees that serve as in-house Career Advisors but also hold office hours both in The Career Center and within designated academic units. In addition to performing drop-in career advising at The Career Center, Career Liaisons are able to meet with students in their specified academic units during select on-site hours.
