Schedule an Appointment

Now is the time to let us guide you to the career that’s right for you.

The earlier, the better when it comes to receiving career advice, so Freshmen and Seniors alike; please come by and visit us at the James W. Stuckert Career Center where professional career advisors have a variety of ways to assist you with any questions you may have related to your career and/or major goals. There is NO LIMIT to the number of times you can access this FREE service.

DROP-INS:

Initially, you’ll want to attend a Drop-in. At a drop-in you can ask anything related to your career and/or major concerns and professional career advisors will help you sort it out. These sessions are designed for needs that can normally be addressed by a career advisor within 15 minutes. If it turns out that you need more time for discussion, we can easily schedule a private appointment with an advisor for a longer time. During the academic year, we welcome drop-in visitors on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. where you will be seen on a first-come, first-served basis. Please bring relevant materials such as a paper copy of your resume, cover letter, or job descriptions to which you are applying. If you don’t have these materials, no worries, we can help you create them!

APPOINTMENTS: 

We strongly encourage students to attend drop-in hours first to meet with an advisor who can help you determine the appropriate next step in your career development. If you are unable to attend drop-in hours, you can schedule an appointment by calling 859-257-2746 or emailing ukcareercenter@uky.edu.  Appointments are scheduled during the normal business hours 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. These appointments are reserved for current undergraduate students and recent alumni.
