Welcome to Cornell Career Services

….where students engage in learning and self-discovery, and build connections to prepare for managing their careers as they contribute to a changing world.

Cornell Career Services is part of Cornell's Division of Student and Campus Life. 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 empower students to identify their strengths, interests, and values; discover and explore possibilities; gain experience; and develop strategies for pursuing diverse career paths and making mindful career decisions. We offer an array of career-development activities that inspire students to gain confidence and establish a foundation upon which to build their careers 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.
