Alumni

The Wasserman Center is committed to assisting NYU alumni with their career development after graduation. We offer general career services to alumni from eligible NYU schools which include individual career coaching, in-person and virtual professional development events, and online job search resources. Whether you are looking to advance your career, considering a career transition, or about to start a new job search, the Wasserman Center is an excellent place to start.

Career Coaching

Schedule a 30 minute appointment on NYU CareerNet to meet with an alumni career coach in-person, by phone, or virtually through Skype or Google Hangouts. We can work with you to assess your interests and skills, create a strategic action plan for your job search, prepare for an interview, enhance your resume and cover letter, and more.

Before Your Appointment

At least two days prior to your appointment, please send the career coach your goals/questions for the meeting, and any relevant materials you would like us to review. This will help us prepare for your appointment.

During Your Appointment

Our role as a career coach is to listen, provide you with career advice, and identify the best strategies and resources to support your next steps. During the meeting we may also ask questions about your current and past work experiences, academic background, job search techniques, and other professional development activities.

After Your Appointment

We work to provide you with specific next steps to follow up on after our appointment ends, and may also send you additional information via email. We ask that you complete these next steps prior to scheduling a follow up appointment.

More About Alumni Career Services

While we recognize that every career journey is unique, there are some requests that extend beyond our scope of services. We are unable to provide resume and cover letter writing, technical/computer trainings, industry specialized or legal advice, alumni or employer contact information, or job placement services. Instead, we encourage you to take a proactive role in your professional development and will work with you to identify and achieve your career-related goals.

Drop-in Hours

Drop-in Hours will resume in October.
These five-minute meetings are available during various times each week without an appointment on a first come, first served basis. Drop-in hours are primarily used to review resumes, cover letters and/or answer quick career development-related questions.
