    As it turns out, my university offers various types of job interview coaching and similar stuff, but I only found about them very recently because of how goddamned well hidden is that place, both physically and on the web. Even if I was studying on that campus (humanities, 20 minutes on bus from sciences) I'm not sure if I'd ever wander behind all those other buildings to discover it. Their SEO is even worse than physical location.

My partner has long wanted to do a project where she makes a comprehensive list of all of the resources that her university makes available to students and creating simple search filters like 'Where is this office?' 'What are they actually able to do to help a student?' 'What documents do I need to bring to accomplish my goal for visiting this office?' etcetera.

We started doing a survey and promptly gave up. There is simply too much ongoing change in personnel and inconsistency in what one representative of the university says they can do compared to a different person, in the same office, in the same week. This was true of basic administration (Scheduling classes, arranging payments for tuition), financial aid, academic counseling and university mental health resources.

I am thankful to hear that you found a resource that feels like a value-add for you.
