All Liberal Arts students have an account in Nittany Lion Careers ( Log in with your Penn State Access ID and password to start exploring.

Throughout the academic year, we will be posting tips to help Liberal Arts students navigate Nittany Lion Careers. Posts will be included on your NIttany Lion Careers homepage and in the Liberal Arts Undergraduate Newswire. You can also download a copy of each tip in the Resource Library in your Nittany Lion Careers account.

On the home screen of your Nittany Lion Careers account, click on “Counseling & Calendar” and then “Counseling Appt.”

Click on the “Request New Appointment” button.

Fill out the appropriate filters to search for an appointment that works with your schedule. In the “Type” section, make sure to select “In-Person.” We do not offer virtual appointments at this point.

All the staff members from the Liberal Arts Career Enrichment Network will have “(Liberal Arts)” next to their names. If you hover over each person’s name, you can find out more information about the staff member and what topics she is available to discuss with you. Once you select the appropriate filters, click on the “Check Availability” button.

A list of possible dates and times will appear on the right. Select the date and time that works best with your schedule.

You can either refine your results to see different options or select an appointment from the list on the right that works for you. Next, confirm your appointment.

Make sure to select the appropriate appointment type so our staff knows what you hope to discuss. Then, submit your request.

Your appointment request will show up as a “Requested Appointment” initially. Once a staff member in our office confirms the appointment it will move to “Approved Appointments.”

You will receive email confirmations that your request has been received and then approved/rejected, along with a reminder about your appointment the day before.  If you need to reschedule, you can do so up to 24 hours before your appointment through your Nittany Lion Careers account.  If an emergency comes up within 24 hours, call or email the Career Enrichment Network.
