Our Services

START WITH THE BASICS

Workshops teach students the basics of working life — how to write and address a resume and cover letter, what to say or avoid in interviews and how to manage professional etiquette. It’s a crash course with important details and a great way to show advisors strength of intent before private, more focused consultations.

POWERFUL OPPORTUNITIES

The King’s College offers powerful opportunities to meet representatives from companies and organizations in New York City and beyond. Seminars and presentations teach students about the working goals, cultural expectations and final outcomes of news from prospective employers. Bookmark our calendar to stay up to date on these exclusive talks. Prospective speakers, please see Employers.

PLAN YOUR CAREER

The Office of Career Development schedules consultations with underclassmen exploring career interests and upperclassmen sealing internships or jobs. Get help planning a career and hear feedback on resumes and interview experiences. Attendance at a resume seminar and a first draft of a resume are required for consultations. Career Tools offers seminar sign-up and resume help.

GRADUATE SCHOOLS

Graduate school is a big decision. The amount of time and money graduate students commit is only for the strong of heart and mind, but the success could be immeasurable. Some careers require advanced degrees — others simply pay significantly more to those bold enough to obtain one.
