  • Virtual appointments are available: UAA students and alumni can schedule virtual appointments, by phone or video with a Career Services staff member for assistance with resumes and cover letters, mock interviews, job search assistance or career exploration. Students can log in to Handshake with their UA credentials to schedule an appointment.
