Preparation for future career success is a primary motive of everyone seeking higher education. The New School is committed to helping every student identify, plan and implement sound career decisions as part of their college education and personal growth. It is the mission of Career Development to support both students and alumni in this aspect of their education.
New School Career Development takes a holistic and educational approach to career and life planning
through programs and services that bridge self-awareness and knowledge of the world of work. We wish to empower every student to enter the competitive global
economy with confidence and competence.
You can encourage your son or
daughter to make use of the programs and services offered by Career Development. Students who
do so throughout their four years at The New
School will be better prepared to land good jobs or enter graduate school.
Also encourage your child to get involved in extracurricular
activities, such as student organizations or volunteering. Students who are active outside the classroom meet more
people and gain skills and experiences that will serve them well when they begin their working lives.
Career Development offers individual career counseling; personality and skills assessment testing; access to student jobs and internships; résumé writing workshops and reviews; industry and alumni networking events; career fairs; guidance about graduate and professional schools; and other tools that offer access to companies that are recruiting college graduates.
We counsel students about choosing an appropriate major to match their
career interests. We offer training in job-search skills and
opportunities to network with alumni and potential employers. We have
resources to assist students at every stage of development,
whether they are looking for a summer job after their first year,
looking for an internship to gain experience, or finding the
right job opportunity after graduation.
Many new students are under the impression that our office is only open
to seniors. This is not true. We encourage students from their
first year on campus to become familiar with our services and begin
working with us to develop the skills they'll need for lifelong professional success. Furthermore, after they graduate, they can continue to use our services as members of The New School Alumni Association.
Every year, more than 1,000 organizations contact Career Development seeking to
recruit New School students. In addition, we subscribe to such job listing services as the International Careers Employment Weekly and
