Meeting with Counselors: Drop-In Hours | AppointmentsCounseling Appointments
To schedule an appointment with a CPC counselor, either call the CPC at 212-636-6926 or stop by the CPC Main Office and speak to one of the CPC receptionists.
Counseling appointments are generally one-hour long. During high demand periods, especially in July, November and December, counseling appointments may be limited to thirty minutes. Remember to bring a draft of your resume and/or cover letter(s) to your appointment for the counselor to review if you wish to discuss either or have them critiqued.
Counseling appointments may be conducted via telephone.
Throughout the year, Monday through Thursday the CPC hosts Drop-In Hours from 12-1 pm, 1-2 pm, 2-3 pm, 3-4 pm and 5-6 pm.
Drop-In hours are designed to assist you by providing quick answers to brief career-related questions. One CPC counselor is available for drop-ins each hour. To speak with a counselor, you may either visit the CPC in person or call 212-636-6926.
Sign up is on a first-come basis and begins 15 minutes before the start of the particular drop-in hour. Students or alumni seeking a phone drop-in may call up to fifteen minutes before the start of the drop-in hour. If you call, the front desk staff will take your phone number and provide you with the time slot during the drop-in hour when a counselor will call you back. Students or alumni who come to the CPC must sign-in and remain in the CPC office or forfeit their drop-in slot. Counselors can meet with students/alumni for a maximum of fifteen minutes during each drop-in hour, thus allowing for up to four drop-in slots per hour.
