Career Services

IMPORTANT: Due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak NYSCAS Career Services has moved to remote appointments and workshops exclusively until further notice. To make an appointment with your Career Counselor and/or sign up for a face-to-face Zoom workshop email and mention, “NYSCAS Student Appointment” in your email subject line.

Many of our students enroll at NYSCAS already considering their career options, and we’re prepared to support them.

Our professional career advisors help students find and secure internships and explore their career options. They can even help you land interviews for part- and full-time employment. 

We regularly conduct workshops and offer one-on-one sessions on resume preparation, interview skills, and job market research. 

And twice a year we bring the jobs to you, hosting career fairs with the participation of many impressive companies. Often the initial interviews, to determine if you will be called back for a follow-up interview, are conducted right there at the career fair.
