How | advance planning | info we need from you

For best likelihood that we can accommodate your request, please make your request at least two weeks in advance. Sometimes we are able to accommodate short-term requests; sometimes we're not able. Please note we are heavily booked early in the semester and prior to career fairs.

Complete the online presentation request.

In addition to requested date(s), start and end times, and location, please provide information on the size and composition — graduate, undergraduate, class levels, majors — of your group.

The advisor who can accommodate your request will contact you to discuss details.

Presentation alternatives?

If we are not able to accomodate your request, please consider referring students to presentations held during the semester; listed on our events calendar.


We appreciate your interest in having your class or student organization learn more about career topics and skills!
