How can the CareerLAB staff help me?

Phase 1: First-year students can first speak with any of our specially trained Peer Career Advisors (PCAs) during open hours,
Sundays - Fridays  1:30-3:30 pm
, held on the first floor of the CareerLAB at 167 Angell Street. PCA open hours are the place to start to learn how to search for a job or internship; how to use Handshake and BrownConnect; how to improve a resume and/or cover letter; and how to apply for internship funding through the LINK program. It is not necessary to register to meet with a PCA during Open Hours.

Phase 2: Once you've met with a PCA or have attended a Getting Started program (see dates above), you can chat with a Career Counselor about connections between careers and concentrations; career self-assessments; individualized plans; or, if you're feeling lost or confused, to figure out how to even get started! Partnering with a Career Counselor that you will chat with about your future plans (both during college and after) starts your first year.
