Career Development offers counseling throughout the calendar year to students and alumni of The New School for Public Engagement, Eugene Lang College, Mannes College, The New School for Jazz, and The New School for Drama BFA program.
There are no separate fees for Career Development services. For students, it is included in the Student Services fee collected each semester at registration. For alumni, it is a privilege of membership in The New School Alumni Association.
Whether you are rethinking your program of study or getting ready to look for a job, we administer personal assessment tools that can provide valuable guidance by measuring your occupational interests, personal preferences, communication style, motivated abilities, and personality type. Current students and alumni within one year of graduation can schedule an appointment to take an assessment and review it with a counselor. We also offer regular workshops open to all students and alumni that describe and discuss the value of the Career Vectors and Myers-Briggs Type Indicator in a general way. Note: Assessment indicators cannot be taken or evaluated during walk-in counseling. You must make an appointment
Career Development advising takes three basic forms. The nature of the interaction depends on the services your are seeking.
If you cannot meet a scheduled appointment, consideration for your fellow students and alumni and courtesy to Career Development staff dictates that you cancel by telephone or email at least 24 hours in advance. We will make every effort to reschedule your appointment in the next five business days.
If you arrive more than 10 minutes late for an appointment, we may require you to to reschedule.
For a telephone appointment, you must call your assigned counselor at the time scheduled and the number provided. If you call more than 10 minutes late, your appointment will be canceled, and you will have to reschedule.
If, for any reason, you fail to cancel a scheduled appointment at least 24 hours in advance (or if you arrive late for scheduled appointments more than three times) you will receive a Career Development policy violation. If you accrue three policy violations in a semester, you will not be allowed to schedule further appointments at career center for the remainder of that semester.
Career Services counseling is always private and confidential. We do not release counseling records or information about counseling sessions without written authorization from the advisee. The Federal Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) stipulates the limited circumstances within which students’ personal information may be shared with third parties.
Note: Due to Career Development’s working relationships with other offices of The New School, we are occasionally asked to confirm a student's career counseling attendance by professors, academic advisors, and others who refer students to our services. As permitted by FERPA, we do share the number of appointments a student has attended with those New School staff members with an educational need to know. However, the actual content of sessions is never released to third parties, unless the content meets one of the limitations to confidentiality outlined in FERPA.
Statistical information about the users of Career Development services is recorded for the purpose of university internal research and/or demographic reporting. Nothing that would identify individuals is included in such reports. Examples of demographic data include gender, ethnicity, academic status (probation, graduate, senior year, etc.) and academic major. This information allows us to improve our services.
