About Us

Career Advising and Experiential Learning is committed to assisting Caltech students, postdocs and alumni with career planning, including career exploration, graduate and professional school advising and job search strategies for full-time employment, internships and related opportunities.

We offer support at all stages of career development, from exploration of interests and career options to job hunting specifics such as mock interviews and salary negotiation techniques.

We maintain a career library, provide a program of workshops, and individual advising sessions to provide the information and personal support that our community requires as they make and implement decisions about their careers.

We are located on the third floor of the Center for Student Services, Room 310 (414 S. Holliston Ave.) For answers to general questions, please email

Looking to meet with one of our career advisors regarding your resume, cover letter, interview or any other career or pre-health related topic? Students, postdocs and alumni may request an appointment through Next Steps Caltech!
