Career Communities connect students, employers, faculty, and staff through common career interests and industries (not majors,) and offer you access to customized programming, job/internship listings, and coaching!
Consultations (approximately 30 minutes) that may focus on any aspect of the career decision-making or job/internship search processes.
Meetings (approximately 60 minutes) between one Career Center staff member and up to 5 students, allowing goal-oriented students to draw strength from interaction with each other. Topics may include interviewing skills, “practice your pitch,” resume review, preparing for a job fair, mock group interviewing, job/internship search strategies, and networking.
For questions that don’t require a full appointment, we offer drop-in hours by Career Community or specialized interest, every day from 10:00 am-12:00 pm. For details, see your Career Community page and/or this page. You can also speak with one of our career counseling interns or a front desk staff member anytime our office is open.
Resume and Cover Letter Review
We recommend a suite of “ career tests” to assist you in the career exploration process.
Workshops and Events
The Career Center offers many in-person and online educational events, and also conducts some presentations upon request. A schedule of upcoming events is available on Handshake.

- On-Campus Recruiting (OCR): The OCR program brings employers to campus, where they interview students for positions within their organizations. The entire process is done online via Handshake.
- Job and Internship Fairs: We offer several fairs each semester for students and alumni to meet employers and learn more about job, internship, and co-op opportunities at their organizations. For a schedule, see Handshake or our homepage.

- Information Sessions: Attend to hear employers talk about positions within their organizations, and tips on applying for them. For a schedule, see Handshake.
Career Advisors Network (CAN)
CAN allows you to connect with alumni and friends who have volunteered to make themselves available for mentoring, advice, and/or informational interviews with students. This is an excellent way to learn more about occupations and industries that interest you!
Job Shadowing and Employer Site Visits
We can connect you with host professionals on Long Island, in NYC and beyond for opportunities to spend a day in the workplace, touring the facility, shadowing a professional through a normal day’s activities, learning more about the organization and industry, and sometimes even participating in actual office projects.

The Career Center has developed partnerships with hundreds of nonprofit agencies, which offer you volunteer opportunities on and off campus.
Internships and Cooperative Education (Co-op)
An internship is a carefully monitored work or service experience in which students create specific learning goals and actively reflect on what they are learning throughout the semester. A co-op is a highly structured experience that integrates classroom studies with work in a field related to a student’s academic or career goals. For more information on these opportunities, click here.
