Regardless of what your career needs are, we can help in any way that works for you.

The Career Center is here to help you with all of your career-related needs. Through one-on-one appointments, career assessments, and the 2-credit Personal Life & Career Planning Course (GENL 121), the Career Center has the tools and resources you need to create a personalized career plan with confidence. You can make an appointment to meet with a career advisor or career counselor. Career advisors assist with specific needs such as writing resumes or cover letters, finding internships, developing job search strategies, and practicing interview skills. Career counselors can help you establish career goals, interpret career-related assessments, make career decisions, cope with career transitions, and overcome obstacles to career development. Counselors hold a degree and certification or licensure in counseling.

Please note: To accommodate the needs of Towson University’s large student population, individual appointments are limited to three per semester.
