    The Office of Career Services offers students and alumni of The New School for Social Research a wide array of information about the academic and nonacademic job markets and points of access to both. All of our services, resources, and announcements are published on our blog, NSSR Career Hub.

    Visit the blog to see what's going on right now. Some information is maintained permanently here on the website: Job Search Tools and Strategies is a step-by-step guide to getting a job in or outside academia; Job Search Links, categorized by type and discipline, direct students toward career resources in their fields.

    Resources for finding external funding opportunities are published on our External Funding website. We provide links to funding organizations categorized by discipline; a spreadsheet listing funding organizations searchable by discipline, kind of funding, and many more criteria; an article on the “Art of Writing Proposals”; an article on "Helping Students to Tell Their Story"; and other general information about grants and how to obtain them.

    We have also compiled databases of resources likely to be of particular interest to NSSR students. The databases available so far are Teaching Institutions in the Tristate Area; Nonprofit Organizations in NYC; Financial Firms in NYC; Economic Internships; Conferences; Jobs for Psychology MAs; and Think Tanks in NYC.
