Info for Parents
The Center for Career Education (CCE) is available to students from their first day of classes at Columbia, providing individual career counseling, skill development workshops, employer events, and jobs and internships. We encourage students to engage with CCE in their first year to learn about our services and programs and to work with us on a regular basis to develop personalized career plans. We also support students after graduation as we serve alumni for life.
