Career Coaching Services


Our staff works with TC students in all programs and fields of interest. Students can meet one-on-one with a career coach for a 30-minute appointment, or drop by during walk-in hours for quick questions. TC NEXT’s Career Peers are now available to meet with fellow students to support with document review and searching for opportunities. Career Peers are available for virtual quick questions on Fridays from 1-3 pm, and 10-minute appointments can be made through the Career Resources Portal. Additionally, Career Peers will be available for 10-minute drop-in appointments on Wednesdays from 12-2 pm (no appointment needed).
