Career Advising Services
The Alumni Career Services (ACS) team at CCE offers general career support (in person, Skype and by phone) on a wide variety of career concerns. We work to form collaborative partnerships with our alumni clients to empower them to take proactive roles in and ownership of the career planning process. While we will attempt to provide the best services possible, only you can take responsibility for making decisions about your future career. Areas we can specifically assist with may include:
Creating a job search and/or career transition strategy
Providing career research and exploration resources
Developing professional marketing materials (resumes, CV's, cover letters, personal statements, academic letters)
Building a stronger professional network
Mock interviews and preparation
Negotiating job offers
Appointments can be made between the hours of 9:00 AM- 5:00 PM, Monday through Friday, and evening hours are available on Wednesday until 8:00 PM during the academic year. Each appointment is 30 minutes in duration. Please note that alumni may experience longer wait times for an appointment during CCE's busiest time of the year: September, October, January & February. To schedule an in person or phone appointment, please call 212-854-5609.
For brief questions, alumni may also receive help during quick question hours at CCE, held Monday-Friday, from 1:00 PM- 4:00 PM during the academic year. Please note that quick question sessions are only 10 minutes long. To participate in quick question sessions, please come to the Center during 1:00PM- 4:00 PM to sign up for a time slot.
Alumni can also attend our career development workshops, seminars, and programs organized by the Alumni Career Services team. To view our upcoming events' schedule, please click here.
While we are always happy to assist our alumni, we recognize that there are some career concerns that may require more extensive support.
