Career Advising

The career development journey begins and ends with you!

The student-centered culture at Oxy aligns with the career advising approach at the Hameetman Career Center (HCC). Students benefit from individual and small group career advising, and our experienced professionals help students explore and evaluate their varied career interests. We encourage you to meet with a career adviser—we want to know each student and we want each student to know us.

To schedule an appointment with a Career Adviser - go to the “Career Center” tab in Handshake

Students are ultimately responsible for their career development, and there is no better time than the present to get started. We are especially adept at helping students take the early steps required to lay a solid foundation in career-readiness.
