Career Coaching

15 Minute Appointments

15 minute appointments are available during certain times each week on a first-come, first-served basis, and are great for:

  • Resume and cover letter reviews
  • Job search questions
  • Networking & interviewing tips
  • Unsure where to start!
  • Other quick career related questions

30 Minute Appointments

For more in-depth career questions, you can schedule a 30-minute appointment through Handshake to meet with a career coach. We can work with you to discuss your interests and skills, create an action plan for your job search, prepare for an interview, and more.   

Handshake

As an NYU alumnus you have free access to job listings and online career resources through Handshake. This is also where you can schedule career coaching appointments, pre-register for alumni-focused events, and stay connected to the latest news and updates from the Wasserman Center.

Professional Development Events

The Wasserman Center is excited to partner with career experts around the world to deliver the latest job search and career development strategies to NYU alumni. You can find alumni events by:

  • Logging into Handshake and selecting the Events tab in the top navigation bar, then searching for “alumni”.
  • Visiting the NYU Alumni Association’s online event calendar.

Accessing Our Offices

Your alumni card does not give you access to most University buildings and services. Access to the Wasserman Center is granted to alumni with a valid photo ID up to one hour before you have a coaching appointment or event to attend. Attempting to use our offices for other purposes may result in a restriction of your career services at the Wasserman Center.

When you arrive at any of our office locations, you must check-in at the front security desk. We suggest you allow at least 5-10 minutes before your scheduled time to complete the check-in process.

We ask that all visitors conduct themselves in a respectful and responsible manner when using our services and interacting with NYU staff, students, employers, faculty, or other community members. For more information on using our services, please review our Alumni Career Services Code of Conduct in the Resource section of Handshake.

Computer and Printing Resources

Printing and computer services are not available at the Wasserman Center. If you need materials printed for an appointment, email them to your career coach ahead of time. Alternatively, you can find local computer and printing services through UPS, FedEx Office or The New York Public Library. We do not offer computer work areas, co-working spaces, or private rooms for personal or business use at this time.

External Coaching Resources

Most alumni meet with us one to two times as they consider next steps in their career. If you are interested in more extensive or on-going career support, we recommend working with a private coach who can offer specialized support. Prices for private coaches will vary, but many offer low or no cost introductory sessions. You may choose to meet with a few providers at first, to ensure you find a coach that best aligns with your specific needs. There are a variety of public directories available to help you in this process, including:

  • LinkedIn Pro Finder- Find career coaches, executive coaches, and resume writers in your area through LinkedIn's professional services marketplace.
  • The Muse Career Coaches- Search for Muse coaches who specialize in interviewing techniques, leadership development, negotiation, job search strategy and more.
  • NCDA Certified Career Coaches- A directory of certified career counselors through the National Career Development Association.
  • iRelaunch Career Re-Entry Coaches- A group of career coaches who specialize in resources, strategies, and navigating the job search for those returning to the workforce.
