As many of you are aware, Penn State released an official announcement on March 11, 2020 regarding our move to remote learning until Friday, April 3rd (at the earliest). The Advising and Career Services office will be operating with a combination of in person and virtual office hours beginning Monday, March 16 through Friday, April 3.
Advising: Erica Tachoir will be available on Wednesdays, March 18, 25 and April 1 for in person Advising and Career Appointments from 10 am to 4 pm. Students will need to schedule as we will also be accepting virtual walk-ins via ZOOM. Each adviser has their own ZOOM meeting room. See links below:

The Center for Career Education and Development exists to assist and advise students as they transition through their college experience into career placement. Our eight-semester action plan begins on day one at PSUGA. Students here have a unique opportunity to work with faculty, staff, and employers who are interested in their success. We accomplish this through a three prong process:
#WeAre SHADOWING: The opportunities for undergraduate students to get a taste of the real world is possible through a shadowing experience. By connecting with a LION LINK mentor, GA students can spend a few hours or a few weeks learning more about particular career fields and places of employment.
#WeAre INTERNING: Today, internships are KEY to gaining employment after graduation. Successful GA grads have interned in a variety of Fortune 500s, non-profit and educational settings including: US Steel, The FBI, and the US Naval Academy.
#WeAre WORKING: With over 800,000 Nittany Lions worldwide (and the largest single population of alum here in Allegheny County), you can find a PSU grad working most anywhere. On average, GA grads are employed within their field of study within the first six months after graduation.
