The health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff are of utmost importance during these uncertain times. Due to this, Murray State University Career Services continues to serve students and alumni virtually through Zoom and phone coaching appointments. If circumstances require you to meet in-person, contact us directly (firstname.lastname@example.org / 270-809-3735) to schedule an appointment.
Please note, face-to-face appointment availability is limited due to space and staff scheduling, which may result in longer wait times for appointments. Those seeking a face-to-face appointment will be asked to adhere to social distancing guidelines and to wear a mask, per the Racer Restart plan.
