Career Counseling/Coaching

Career Counselors/Coaches meet with graduate students to determine career goals and offer strategies for planning. They work together to assess interests, career competencies and skills, and job-related values, set career goals, prepare a targeted resume or CV and cover letter, and develop job search strategies.  Stop by during our walk-in hours for a brief meeting with a counselor or make a full appointment.  

Career Preparation Tools

Graduate students have access to our on-line tools and resources including researching careers on CandidCareer and  practicing interviewing on InterviewStream.  We also offer standardized assessments that can further support your career planning and decision making.   

Searching for Opportunities

The CDC can assist graduate students with searching for short-term, part-time, freelance, internship and full time opportunities.   A place to start is on Purchase JobScore, our job and internship platform where employers post for Purchase students and alumni.

Our events are open to all students and alumni and include career panels, mini-fairs, guest speakers, employer visits and our annual Job & Internship Fair.  Check out our events page to see what is coming up and follow us on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter to stay up-to-date on our programs and events.
