Important Career Services Updates

The following is effective March 19, 2020.

Our team recognizes the challenges of being away from the Brockport community and your normal routine as a student. We are here to support you in the coming weeks and look forward to providing many of our regular services in new, technology-focused ways. We will miss seeing you in person each day and wish you good health and success during the weeks ahead.

Effective immediately, Brockport Career Services is transitioning all upcoming appointments and events to online modalities:

Handshake

Log-in to your Handshake account to access the many of our services and resources. Need help logging in?

Virtual Appointments

Request an appointment and choose Video or Phone Call option. Your career coach will send you a link to click in order to connect to an online virtual appointment room or call you at the number you specify. If you prefer a phone call, please include the direct phone number you would like your career coach to call. Appointment Types: Career Coaching (Exploration), Job Searching, Mock Interview, Grad School
