No you don't. Our career services staff actually care about students. They will work with you. Work with them and take initiative.
Remember two things:
(1) Career services cannot give you a job nor can they force a firm to hire you. They try to facilitate this by bringing in as many firms as possible. Likewise, people bitching about the 'top' students getting all the interviews need to remember that career services has already dropped the max number of interviews that someone can take by 33%. This is purely at the expense of top students and increases the likelihood of alternatives becoming interviews.
(2) The career services office is staffed by humans that are working their asses off for you. Be nice to them and they will appreciate that. It can go a long way. If a firm has time to interview one more candidate in a day, you want your name to be the first one that career services thinks of because you were always nice.
