Welcome to Cornell Career Services

….where any student can identify, explore, and pursue any career. 

Cornell Career Services is part of Cornell's Division of Student and Academic Services. Our comprehensive services in Barnes Hall are open to all students, and complement the services offered through career offices in the undergraduate colleges that are tailored to more college-specific academic and career goals. Students in the Johnson School of Management, Law School, and College of Veterinary Medicine are served by their independent career offices.

The mission of Cornell Career Services is to contribute to the Cornell community of learning by providing outstanding career development services that help students apply their education and experiences toward advancing their career goals over a lifetime.

Cornell Career Services staff members want to help you learn about your skills and interests, and articulate them confidently in resumes, cover letters, interviews, and personal statements; identify and explore career options that you might pursue; and implement an effective strategy to attain your desired career outcomes. You will find many resources in these pages, and we also invite you to visit our offices in person.
