    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 in-person drop-in help:

    • Face masks are worn at all times by clients and staff
    • No more than 8 clients on the Studio floor
    • Plastic barriers installed on desks and computer stations
    • Hand sanitzer available
    • High-touch surfaces being sanitized after each client's visit

    Virtual appointments

    The Nevada Career Studio also has an appointment scheduling process if you need online assistance. To request an appointment with one of our Career Mentors, login to Handshake and follow these steps:
