- You will receive an email notification once the career advisor approves your appointment time.
- Your career advisor will then send you a link to access your appointment call over Google Hangouts or Zoom. Dial-in options are available if you do not have access to a computer at this time.
- Alumni can still make appointments via UICCareers.com for several months after graduation. If you no longer have access to your UICcareers.com account, please email the advisor designated for your major. Click here to see a list of advisors by major.
