Career Counseling and Advising

Career advisors are available to meet with students and alumni regarding career-related issues. Students must be currently registered for at least one credited class at FIT in order to utilize the career counseling services.

Career counseling is available through the walk-in service or by appointment. In addition, separate walk-in hours for social media guidance are also available. (scroll to the bottom of page)


We invite you to walk in and meet with a career advisor on a first-come, first-serve basis to have quick questions answered or to receive guidance on the following:

  • resume and cover letter writing
  • job opportunities
  • interviewing preparation
  • freelance opportunities
  • salary negotiation
  • career and job exploration
  • labor market information
  • career decision making

NO APPOINTMENT IS NECESSARY for WALK-INS. Please arrive at least half an hour before the counseling period ends. Please bring pen and paper and a draft of your resume, if needed.


Mondays: 10:30am - 12:30pm
Wednesdays 1:30pm - 3:30pm

**NOTE: Summer session begins Friday, May 22. There is no walk-in counseling on Tuesdays, Thursdays, or Fridays. FIT is closed on the following days during the Summer: Monday, May 25 and all Fridays starting June 5 through Friday, August 14. Our office will resume Friday hours on Friday, August 21.

Counseling services end promptly at stated times. Hours are subject to change due to unforeseen circumstances. We recommend that you call 212.217.3000 before you arrive to confirm hours for that day


To work with a career counselor in a more in depth manner, you are encouraged to make an appointment to discuss your needs. Career counseling is available to F.I.T. Students and Alumni.
