Quick Access to Drop-in and Appointment Services

Career Services


Career Services Drop-ins are quick 15-20 minute meetings with a member of GECD staff.  This service is available while classes are in session to MIT students and recent alumni of the institute (those who have graduated within the last 16 months).  No appointment is necessary and students are seen in the order they arrive.
