Career Services Center extends hours

Busy students now have more chances to stop by the Career Services Center for help related to their career opportunities or choosing a major.

The center has extended its hours to 6 p.m. on Mondays and Tuesdays. Previously, Career Services was open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. every day.

It is still located in the Downing University Center Annex 230, despite the DUC renovation project.

Robert Unseld, associate director for the Career Services Center, said there has been a slight increase in traffic at the center in the beginning of this semester — about a 5 percent increase from last year.

Unseld also said he absolutely thinks this increase is due to the new extended hours.

“We are trying our best to be available to students outside of normal business hours, and from our traffic, we’ve found that Mondays and Tuesdays seem to be days that our traffic picks up during the end of the day,” Unseld said. “So, we’ll try to keep the doors open a little bit later.”

The extended hours will at least last throughout this academic year, he said.

“We’re only a little bit up, but this is a big job search time of the year,” he said.
