Helping Students (Services)

Cornell Career Services (CCS) is part of Cornell's Division of Student and Campus Life. We are comprised of college career offices and centralized offices in Barnes Hall offering services to all students.

Our staff offer assistance with such things as career exploration, graduate and professional school advising and preparation, health careers, legal careers, internship and full-time job searches, fellowships, specialized advising. We also maintain an extensive library of career-related materials, including general information and specialized resources.

Our goal is to help students apply their education and experiences toward advancing their career goals over a lifetime. We invite you to become familiar with CCS so that you can encourage your advisees and other students to explore our resources and services.

Career Information Services

Career Libraries

A comprehensive collection of books, directories, job bulletins, and audio and videotapes is available to help students research career options and identify potential employers. The main library is located in 103 Barnes Hall, and each college office maintains a smaller collection of college-specific materials.

Employer Information

Annual reports, company literature and profiles, videotapes, and brochures supplied by organizations that recruit on campus help students research employers and prepare for interviews.

E-mail Communication

Students should register with our information system, Cornell Handshake, and indicate their career interests in their student profile. We will then send targeted notifications of events and opportunities on- and off-campus, such as alumni panels, networking events, special skill-building programs hosted by employers, employer receptions, etc.
