Did You Know?
The CCS library contains several resources to help you write a personal statement for graduate school applications. A catalog keyword search on "personal essay" will help you identify them.
Our goal in Cornell Career Services is to help Cornell students apply their education and experiences toward advancing their career goals over a lifetime. Many students will approach their faculty advisors first with questions about the future, so we invite you to spend some time exploring this website to learn more about our programs and services. We look forward to welcoming your advisees to Cornell Career Services.
Please let us know if you have any questions about CCS or would like to learn more about how we can assist students in your program.
How You Can Help
As a Cornell faculty member, you play an important role in directing students to our services, and you can also help enrich some of these services. Faculty members serve as mentors and participate in mock interviews for students applying for prestigious fellowships. They also provide a critical service to Cornell students applying to medical school, by interviewing applicants and writing letters of evaluation.
Former Vice Provost Isaac Kramnick noted, "Faculty involvement in the Fellowship Advising Program and Health Careers Evaluation Committee makes a significant difference in the success of these programs. The University and the students assisted through these programs appreciate and value your participation."
CCS staff are always eager to pursue new ways to reach students, and would be happy to collaborate with you on ideas for programs or class presentations. Employers are also often interested in meeting with faculty members to learn more about current fields of study and to discuss trends and needs in the workplace. Please let us know if you're interested in meeting with employers, and we will help to facilitate these discussions.
