CO-OP + CAREER Advising Appointments Going Virtual

In light of the recent developments with COVID-19 and the movement of courses online, all appointments with your CO-OP + CAREER Advisor will be conducted remotely.  Below are instructions for making and attending remote appointments. You can have either a phone appointment, or a video session via Zoom. You can schedule an appointment through WITworks or by calling the office.

Until you are notified otherwise, we are asking that you do not physically come to the CO-OPS + CAREERS Office. If you need accommodations for your phone or video appointment, please let us know.

Instructions for Scheduling

  • If using WITworks:
    • Use the WITworks “Counseling Appointment” tab on the left side of the screen.
    • Click on the red box that says “Request New Appointment”.
    • Fill out all fields and select “Check Availability”.
    • All available appointments will appear on the right side of the screen – select appointment that works for you.
    • Indicate in the “Purpose of the appointment” section which type of meeting you want – phone or video (and any additional explanation needed).
      • If you want a phone meeting, include your number so your advisor can call you.
    • Click “Submit Request”.
  • If calling the office (617-989-4101) simply work with the person who picks up the phone to provided necessary information as usual.

Instructions for Meeting

  • If using Zoom for a video appointment:
    • Your advisor will email you the link to participate at the start of your appointment.
    • Click on that link and you will be brought to a Zoom video in your web browser. You do not need to download special software.
    • Email any documents you want reviewed ahead of time.
