Meet your Professional Resource Counselor

David Cota-Buckhout
As a front-line staff member when students enter the office, David’s Resource Counselor role allows him to serve all students with a wide variety of majors and career fields during walk-ins in the Resource Library. From goal articulation to resume and cover letter critiquing, he answers questions from freshmen unsure about their future career path as well as from seniors and graduate students desiring to clarify their goals, prepare for next steps and make concise documentation for networking. In addition to walk-ins, David works with students at workshops offered at the center. While he is a “generalist counselor,” David is also a member of two career specialty teams: the Engineering and Applied Sciences team and the Banking, Finance and Consulting team.

Prior to his time at the University of Rochester, David received his MS in Counselor Education with a College Counseling emphasis at The College at Brockport in 2013, completing an internship that year at Monroe Community College’s Career and Transfer Center. He has also worked as a Practicum Counselor at The College at Brockport’s Counseling Center, Student Assistant at Cornell University where he received his BS in Development Sociology, and Career Peer Advisor at MCC’s Career and Transfer Center.
