Start planning your future today! Our coaches can sit down with you one-on-one to answer your questions and help you plan the next steps of your career.

Coaching is available by appointment and during our drop-in hours. We serve UCSC undergraduate and graduate students who are registered for the current term and Career Center Alumni Access card holders.


The Career Center Coaching staff is still available and has moved to ONLY remote advising through the end of Spring Quarter, due to the implementation of new campus actions announced by Chancellor Cynthia Larive.

Remote advising is available by ZOOM, email, or phone.

See our FAQ Page for instructions on setting up a session with a Coach or Peer Coach!
