Since the 1990s, the Wasserman Center for Career Development has conducted the annual Life Beyond the Square survey and the Part-time Job and Internship Survey to detail the part-time job, internship, and post-baccalaureate plans of NYU undergraduates. The data collected are used to understand where NYU students engage in career exploration and where they go immediately post-graduation, including both employment and graduate or professional school enrollment. The Wasserman Center's career outcomes surveys have been an invaluable tool in determining the career development and employment needs of NYU students and alumni.
