Career Resources for Alumni
NYU’s Wasserman Center for Career Development
To help graduates continue to advance professionally, NYU’s Wasserman Center for Career Development provides an array of services for alumni who are at all stages of their careers.
The best way to stay informed about news and benefits from the Wasserman Center is to join the alumni listserv (send a blank email to firstname.lastname@example.org). Subscribers receive information on free panels and workshops, job postings, and strategies for enhancing your career.
Graduates are also eligible for free career counseling mini-appointments with Wasserman’s seasoned experts. In these 15-minute discussions, alumni can address whatever topics best suit their needs, from the most effective way to conduct an online job search to how to transition to a new industry or graduate school program.
Additionally, alumni have several options for accessing job listings through NYU CareerNet, the Center’s online employment database. Full NYU CareerNet access, which includes listings geared toward more recent alumni, is available for three months at a rate of $75. Alumni can explore a free two-week trial of this service to determine if the database meets their specific job search needs. There are also a number of free job postings available to all alumni via a separate link on NYU CareerNet. Call the Center at 212.998.4730 for details.
Wasserman also offers a number of fee-based services and packages for alumni. Please visit the NYU Wasserman Center for Career Development online for more information and to view other initiatives that are on the way.
The Wasserman Center for Career Development Mentor Network Program enables students to get an "inside look" at the working world through informational interviewing, networking, and observation. Mentors gain the satisfaction of helping students make sound career decisions, and you choose how much time you contribute depending on your availability.
Alumni who wish to consult with experienced professionals in particular fields can also request informational interviews with fellow alumni in the Mentor Network program. For more information and to sign up, click here.
