Due to the current COVID-19 situation, all appointments will be held virtually
The UCC remains open and our career coaches want to serve their students! We have moved to a remote-work policy and will be able to assist you with your career needs virtually via phone, email, or Microsoft Teams. Career Coaches are available for appointments during normal business hours (see footers below).
Preparing for and Accessing your Virtual Career Coaching Appointment:
To hold a virtual video or voice career coaching appointment with your advisor, via Microsoft Teams, you will need:
- Access to the internet
- A computer with a microphone
- To use Google Chrome as your web browser (Safari may not support the application)
If you do not have access to these things, please contact your advisor about other ways to meet virtually.
Once you have scheduled an appointment with a career coach, you will receive an email in your louisville.edu email inbox that includes a link to the virtual appointment. Check out the step-by-step guide below for more information:

Appointment No-Show Policy
To explain the expectations for students/alumni for scheduled appointments. In their interactions with the University Career Center, students/alumni are expected to model the norms of professional behavior that are commonly found in the workplace.
All current students and alumni who have scheduled appointments with the University Career Center.
Participants are expected to show up for appointments they have scheduled. If the participant fails to show up for a scheduled appointment and fails to notify the University Career Center prior to the appointment time, the participant’s access to University Career Center services may be suspended.
First No-Show/Second No-Show:
- If the student/alumni no-shows for the first scheduled appointment with any staff member, they will receive an email informing them that they have missed a scheduled appointment.
- The student/alumni will receive an email after the third missed scheduled appointment notifying them that they have been blocked from scheduling any future appointments and blocked from access to the Cards Career Connection powered by Handshake. To remove the block, the student/alumni must contact the staff member with whom they wish to meet to explain why they have missed appointments and to request reinstatement. Reinstatement will be at the discretion of the staff member.
If reinstatement is denied and the student/alumni wishes to appeal the reinstatement decision, they must call the University Career Center and schedule an appointment with the Director to discuss their appeal.
RESPONSIBILITY OF THE PARTICIPANT:
It is the responsibility of the participant to contact the University Career Center within 24 hours if they are not able to keep their appointment. If there is a special circumstance, the Center will respond accordingly and make arrangements.
