Career Programs

Peer Education

The Wasserman Center's peer educators, known as Wasserman Career Ambassadors, support and promote the mission of the Wasserman Center by serving as liaisons between students and the Wasserman Center. Career Ambassadors encourage NYU students to actively participate in their own career development through self assessment, major and career exploration, decision-making and job-search analysis. WCAs are committed to providing quality programs and resources that empower individuals and connect the NYU community with diverse learning experiences and career opportunities.

Career Boot Camps

Created in partnership with Morgan Stanley, these intensive career conferences are designed to familiarize students with a variety of industries and to help ease the transition from the classroom to the workplace.

Additional information and application information for upcoming Boot Camps can be found on Handshake five weeks before each event.
