Career Center Offers Virtual Assistance

While Berney Family Welcome Center is closed physically, the Career Center team is ready to assist your students virtually! You can “Chat with us” as found on our homepage or give us a call at 785-532-6506 during our typical business hours Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. CST. After office hours, please email careercenter@k-state.edu and we will be back in touch the next business day.

We have a variety of ways that students can connect virtually with Career Center advisors, including drop-ins, scheduled appointments and presentations via Zoom.

  • Virtual Drop-Ins are offered Monday-Thursday 12noon-4 p.m. CST. Drop-ins are best for resume critiques and brief questions.
  • Scheduled Appointments are offered virtually via Zoom or phone. Log in to Handshake. Click the “Career Center” drop-down menu, then select “Appointments.”
  • Outreach Presentations are available for online classes and student organizations when scheduled in advance via our Request a Speaker form.

In addition, we have a In the Midst of COVID-19 feature on our homepage that is updated weekly. A recent edition focused on “Celebrating K-State Student Employees.” As part of that, our annual Kyle Pelton Student Employee of the Year Ceremony took place on  Wednesday, April 8, 2020 and can be viewed via the recording posted on the K-State Career Center Facebook page. Special shout out to PFP for their program support!


As always, see www.k-state.edu/careercenter for a variety of online resources and tools for career exploration and the job search, especially Handshake.
