    Students can work with our employer partners during academic breaks through our job shadowing program to learn more about a particular industry, gain workplace experience, and build their professional network.

You can also make an appointment on Handshake and select a time that's convenient for you. Online students and DES students who are not in the Melbourne, Florida area may request a phone or online appointment instead of an in-person meeting.

Online and Extended Studies Division students should go to Online and DES Students for more information about individualized career services.
