The Office of Career Management is ready to provide you with a comprehensive suite of services to get you up and running for your internship and job prospects. Our services include confidential career advising, interview preparation and career development workshops.
We lead you through an exploration of your career goals, strengths, interests and job or internship search strategy.
You should be prepared in every way for the all-important interview. We do the role playing and feedback that ensures you walk through the door with the confidence and skills you need to nail the interview.
Your Career Plan
You provide us with the information necessary to develop your career plan. We use a variety of instruments to accomplish this. They include a self-assessment and career exploration guide; a career interests survey, which you will fill out in your first year; a second-year individual development plan, which will inventory your interests, strengths and weaknesses and the organizations you are targeting; and a top five strengths exercise, which will help you identify suitable positions and give you a career direction.
Cornell Career Services may also be a resource you want to explore. The office can provide such additional self-assessments as the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator.
