Counselor Application 2023-2024

Counselor Commitment: SAA Career Counselors will serve year-long terms with the possibility of renewal. As a Career Counselor, you’ll have the opportunity to offer guidance and support to emerging professionals. Counselors will be expected to commit a minimum of three (3) hours per month on a flexible schedule, and will engage emerging professionals by providing a mix of mock interviews, resume review sessions, and career advising sessions. Sessions are one-on-one and will last between thirty minutes and one hour. Consider contributing to our profession by volunteering with the Career Services Commons. To volunteer for a year-long term as a Career Counselor in our inaugural cohort, please apply today.
