Welcome back for the spring semester. 

There are many resources available to you through CCE. Below, we’ve highlighted three areas to focus on for the Spring 2023 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. 

QUICK QUESTIONS (VIRTUAL OR IN-PERSON)

These 15-minute sessions do not require appointments. You can visit us on the second floor of Uris Hall, or access these sessions virtually between 2:00-4:00 p.m. ET Monday — Friday via a Zoom link on this page

Quick Questions sessions are great for resume and cover letter touch ups, reviews of application materials, or as a launching point to explore CCE 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.
