Make an Appointment at Business Career Services

Why Should I Meet with a Career Advisor?

Career Advisors in the Business Career Services (BCS) are available to provide individualized guidance to your specific career objectives. Whether you’re exploring the range of career options available to you in business, seeking an internship or ready to execute your job search, we’re here to support your efforts. Students who work with career services are more likely to be employed at graduation and even report higher salaries. The agenda of your appointment is up to you, but typical topics often include:

  • Choosing a business major
  • Resume assistance and critique
  • Interview preparation
  • Internship and job search advice
  • Networking strategies and LinkedIn
  • Managing multiple employment offers
  • Salary negotiation
  • Relocation strategies
  • Mapping a career management strategy

Hours:

The BCS is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 am – 5:00 pm. Appointments are required and can be held through phone or Zoom video call. 

Scheduling an Appointment:

As part of KU and School of Business’ ongoing COVID-19 precautions, Business Career Services appointments will be conducted by phone or Zoom. If you need to schedule an appointment, please do so online or call our office at 785-864-5591. Prior to your scheduled appointment, a career advisor will contact you directly with a zoom meeting link, unless you have specifically requested a phone appointment. Zoom is accessible via smart phone, tablet, or computer. Instructions for using it are available here.

Business Career Services enforces a late policy for all scheduled career advising appointments. Any students who arrive more than 10 minutes late to their scheduled appointment will be asked to reschedule. 

Our Career Advising Team:

Our Career Advisors have expertise in business career paths, area employment trends, companies that recruit at KU and career management strategies. We work closely with an Employer Advisory Council which informs the advice that we extend to students. Our advisors include: Alicia Green, Jennifer Jordan, Ashley Nance, Stephanie Heffner and Jolene Phillips.  More information about our team can be found here.
