3. How should I make an appointment with a career coach?

The easiest way to set up an appointment is by phone. With your calendar in front of you, give us a call at 202-994-3788, and our staff will set you up with a career coach or discuss your options. You may also e-mail us at escareer@gwu.edu.

4. How do I register for ESCC and activate my account?

Your account is automatically created by mid-June, and you will receive an e-mail welcoming you to the career database with all relevant login and procedural information. If you do not receive this welcome e-mail by mid-June, or are having trouble with your account, please be in touch with us over e-mail, at escareer@gwu.edu.

5. Do I have access to the main career center database, GWork?

Yes, all Elliott School graduate students may access the resources at GWU's Center for Career Services, including the database GWork. New student GWork accounts typically become available in the first week of fall classes. 

6. When I graduate, will I still have access to GSCD?

Absolutely! As an alumnus or alumna of the Elliott School graduate program, you have full access to GSCD for life! Most career centers charge alumni for their services, but GSCD is able to help you throughout your career.

We will also encourage you to keep your ESCC profile up-to-date, be involved with GSCD as an alumni mentor, and/or to represent your employer at career panels and career fairs.
