Quick Question Sessions

Confused about what to wear to an interview? Can’t wrap your mind around informational interviewing? Have a question relating to your internship or job search? Quick Question Sessions are 15-minute, first-come, first-served sessions.

It’s a chance to get a fast handle on one particular issue or specific question, such as thank-you notes, graduate school entrance exams, or social networking. While these get-togethers are not meant to take the place of a proper counseling appointment, they’re a great way to identify next steps and familiarize yourself with resources.

To ask your quick question, there’s not need to sign up! Just go to the Ellipse on the first floor at the Center for Student Services (100 Bay State Road) beginning at the start of Quick Question hours. Stop by early if you can—space is limited, and we take students on a first-come, first-served basis.

Please note: We will not be holding Quick Question Sessions during the summer. If you are interested in speaking with a career counselor, please  schedule an appointment. Undergraduate students can make an appointment online on BU CareerLink. Graduate students and alumni, please call 617-353-3590 to schedule an appointment.

If your question is related to your resume or cover letter, please visit us during:

Examples for a Quick Question Session:

  • How to dress for an interview.
  • How to answer a specific interview question, such as: “What are your weaknesses?” or “Why should we hire you?”
  • How to get started searching for an internship or job (e.g., “I’m looking for summer internship in a biology lab. Where can I find these types of opportunities?”).
  • How to prepare for a career expo or fair.
  • What’s networking and how to get started.

Topics Better Saved for a Proper Counseling Appointment:

  • I’m not sure what I want to do after graduation.
  • I’m trying to choose a major, but I have so many interests, I can’t decide.
  • I want to practice for an interview.
