All summer, we have been prepping and planning for when
students return in the fall. This semester, we are launching the new Peer
Career Advising program which will provide undergraduate students with more
advising resources through quick, 15 minute Pop-ins.
What are Pop-ins?
Pop-ins are run by our Peer Career Advisors (PCAs). PCAs
can answer all your career related questions in 15 minute meetings. No
appointment needed, just pop-in!
Who can use

resume?” and “What is this weird part of Handshake?”
What if I want to

We are excited about the launch of this new program, and we hope to see you popping-in soon!
Career Services will be closed from 3pm on Friday, December 21st until 9am on Wednesday, January 2nd, 2019.
We wish you a safe and happy winter break. Congratulations on making it through another year! Thank you for being such a bright part of the Penn community – whether you are a current student, alumni, staff, faculty, employer partner or simply a friend.
Everyone at Career Services looks forward to working with you again in 2019!
