MIT’s Global Education and Career Development (GECD), a student advising department for careers and global experiences, has opened a new satellite office on the main campus called "GECD Express."

The new GECD Express, located in Room 5-118, is open weekdays through commencement — Friday, June 5 — from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Students can stop by the small office for answers to quick questions and referral to advising and other resources. Topics include getting jobs and internships, career planning, going abroad, and applying to medical and graduate school.

GECD Express also offers career service drop-ins from 1 to 3 p.m. through May 15. These 15-to-20-minute appointments are on a first-come, first-served basis and are designed mostly for reviewing career documents such as resumes and cover letters.

Career service drop-ins remain available at GECD's main location on the third floor of Building E39 weekdays through May 15 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Last summer, GECD moved out of building 12 to make way for the new MIT.nano building.
