In-person, drop-in help

The Nevada Career Studio does things a little differently. You do not need to schedule an appointment for in-person help. Stop on by and see us at the Pennington Student Achievement Center, Room 208. Drop in as often as you'd like, and stay for as long as you can.

We are implementing the following COVID-19 health and safety measures for the Nevada Career Studio:

  • Plastic barriers installed on desks and computer stations
  • Hand sanitizer available
  • High-touch surfaces sanitized after each client's visit
  • Face masks available upon request

Class assignments: In-person help

If you need your job application materials reviewed by the Nevada Career Studio for a class assignment, we highly recommend that you come speak with a Career Mentor during our drop-in hours. If you require a confirmation of your drop-in visit for your class assignment, ask our Career Mentors how to receive a confirmation email.

 

Virtual help

We have a dedicated email inbox for students to send us their application materials (E.g. resume, cover letter, personal statement, academic CV); email us at careerhelp@unr.edu. We require at least two business days to review job application materials and provide feedback. Please be aware: the Career Help email inbox is only checked during our drop-in hours.

As an additional resource, we have a virtual front desk available during our drop-in hours on weekdays to answer your general questions. Log in to our virtual front desk via Zoom and one of our Career Mentors will be available.

Class assignments: Virtual help

If you need your job application materials reviewed virtually for a class assignment but are unable to come in person, you may email your documents with a short description of the assignment attached. We require a minimum of 7 business days to ensure a timely response with our suggested feedback on class assignments.

Class assignments overwhelm our email capacity; therefore, we cannot guarantee a timely response on short notice.
