Welcome back for the spring semester. CCE will continue operating both in-person and virtually this semester, and we’re excited to share our full slate of Spring 2022 offerings.
There are many resources available to you through CCE. Below, we’ve highlighted three areas to focus on for the Spring 2022 term.
1. It’s never too early or too late to work with us on career planning.
Visit with one of our career counselors for an appointment — no preparation required.
30-MINUTE APPOINTMENT (VIRTUAL OR IN-PERSON)
This option is a one-on-one session with a career counselor. These sessions are great for starting to explore career options, strategize a job or internship search, take a deep dive into your application materials, talk about offers or negotiation, practice interviews, or any other career-related questions you have. Please note that in-person appointments will resume on January 31, when our physical office re-opens for the semester.
QUICK QUESTIONS (VIRTUAL OR IN-PERSON)
These 15-minute sessions do not require appointments. Starting January 18, you can access these sessions virtually between 2:00-4:00 p.m. ET Monday — Friday via a Zoom link on this page. We will resume offering in-person sessions in our center on January 31.
Quick Questions sessions are great for resume/cover letter touch ups and reviews for your application materials, short questions, or a launching point to explore our resources.
2. LionSHARE remains your best resource to access employers and exclusive opportunities.
WHAT IS LIONSHARE?
LionSHARE is an online portal exclusive to Columbia undergraduates. You will find job and internship postings, employer recruiting events and info sessions, and additional industry information. Access our LionSHARE FAQs.

CAREER FAIRS HOSTED IN LIONSHARE POWERED BY HANDSHAKE
This spring, we are hosting industry-specific micro career fair recruiting events via the LionSHARE platform. This requires you to schedule sessions with employers in advance. Check out our In the Know blog post outlining what to expect at these virtual career fairs.
