Public Notice & Disclaimer

***The resilience coaching sessions do not count towards the career coaching sessions and vice versa so that you can make concurrent appointments.
***You may book three career coaching sessions and three resilience coaching sessions within the three month period.  We recommend that you work with one coach to assure the best benefit for you. If you would like to switch your coach please contact Career Services at
***Before the session, you will be contacted by your coach with instructions on how to join the meeting. If choosing Skype before the session, the participant has to download Skype onto their device. We recommend taking a class to learn the Skype basics, such as Learning Skype with Oliver Schinken.
