Walden University’s Department of Career Planning and Development provides the following services and resources:
We highly recommend that students and alumni first view the 30–minute Discover Career Planning Resources webinar before scheduling a career advising appointment. After that, they may schedule up to three one-on-one telephone or Zoom appointments over a three-month period. Only one appointment reservation is permitted during a 24-hour period. Same day cancellations and no shows cost other students appointment slots; therefore, they are considered appointments for the purpose of this guideline.
We use appointments to educate each individual on tools and strategies that they may implement independently, with a periodic check-in with a career advisor as needed. We encourage Walden students and alumni to actively engage in meeting their career goals through taking proactive steps to strengthen their academic and experiential qualifications, build their professional networks, and have a professional resume or curriculum vitae. We expect that students and alumni act in accordance with the Walden University Student Code of Conduct in advising appointments and in all other interactions.
Due to the scientific studies showing a higher risk of car accidents from talking on a cell phone while one is driving, we do not conduct telephone or Zoom advising appointments with students while they are driving motor vehicles. If you are driving a motor vehicle at the time of your scheduled appointment, we will ask you to pull over to the side of the road to give our advising conversation your full attention or we will require that your appointment be rescheduled.
