Cornell students have many options for the direction of their careers. Each year CCS conducts a survey of graduates from our undergraduate divisions to learn their plans. Overall, usually around half of our graduates go directly into the workforce. About another third continue their education in graduate or professional school, with the remainder undertaking other activities such as volunteering, traveling, or taking time off. The percentage of graduates heading directly into the workforce or selecting a path that requires additional education varies from college to college.
Cornell Career Services provides support, no matter which path you choose to follow for your career. In this section you will find resources for specific career fields. You will find significant resources for conducting job searches in the Students section (Finding Jobs).
