To speak with a Career Advisor about internship/job search strategies, networking, job offer negotiation, or other general career questions, stop in during Drop-In Hours (listed above), or schedule an appointment by coming in the office (201 Carpenter Hall) or calling the front desk at (607) 255-5006. 

To discuss job search strategies, networking, job offer negotiation, or other general career questions, please stop in 201 Carpenter Hall during Drop-In hours (listed above). To get started on your job search, begin working through the Applications & Interviews Workbook, and Personal Networking Strategy Workbook. For tips on how to craft an effective cover letter refer to our Sample Cover Letter.

To schedule an appointment with a Career Advisor, stop in 201 Carpenter Hall or contact the front desk at (607) 255-5006.  To get started on your job search, begin working through the Applications & Interviews Workbook, and Personal Networking Strategy Workbook. For tips on how to transform your CV into a resume refer to the Graduate School  Career Guide, and for pointers on crafting an effective cover letter refer to our Sample Cover Letter.

For questions or concerns about personal issues, careers, Ithaca, or Cornell, contact Christine Holmes, the Director of Postdoctoral Studies, to schedule a meeting.  You can also view applicable resources on the Postdoc Careers website.

As Cornell Engineering alumni, you are welcome and encouraged to use any of the career resources available on our website. If you are beginning or continuing a job search, start by working through the Applications & Interviews Workbook, and the Personal Networking Strategy Workbook. Additionally, be sure to check opportunities in Handshake as it's becoming increasingly more common for employers to post jobs for experienced hires. Due to the volume of current undergraduate and graduate students that our office serves, we are unable to schedule individual appointments with alumni at this time. If you need additional assistance, you may consider hiring a career coach through the International Coach Federation (ICF) or a similar organization.
