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.
