The Office of Career Development Services helps Hunter College students to compete in the job market through a variety of services:

  • Career Counseling Career counseling is an interactive process where students are assisted in discovering the career that will provide optimum personal satisfaction. Counselors meet with students individually and in small groups to explore and evaluate the student’s academic strengths and concentration, additional training, work history, interests, skills and personal traits. Counselors help uncover underlying factors that may impede progress toward decision making. Counselors also help the student develop a resumé, interviewing skills and job search skills. Alumni are also encouraged to use the services for assistance in job search and career change.
  • Internships Internships provide the opportunity to gain pre-professional work experience in a setting related to a student’s major course of study. Interns work in corporations, government agencies and nonprofit organizations. In addition to gaining work-related skills, students develop contacts for future employment and acquire job related experience to enhance their resumé and interview presentation and earn academic credit or stipends.
  • Employer Recruiting Representatives recruit and interview students both on and off campus from a wide variety of fields to meet the employment needs of students in all majors.
  • Employer Visits Employers and successful professionals, including alumni, come to Hunter to discuss career opportunities in their respective areas. Panelists explore current trends in various fields, offer suggestions for preparing for the competitive job market and describe their own careers. From these experiences, students learn about specific companies, their products and services, hiring trends and career opportunities.
  • The On Campus Recruiting Program Graduating seniors have the opportunity to enroll in the On Campus Recruiting Program. Approved resumés are made available to participating employers for review. Employers select those candidates in whom they are interested and conduct interviews on and off campus.
  • CAREERHUNTER Job and Internship Data Base Businesses and organizations in a wide variety of fields post part- and full-time jobs and internships with the Career Development Services office. Students and alumni can register in CAREERHUNTER, create a profile, upload a resumé, access the listings, and send the resumé directly to employers.
  • Career Resources A wide variety of career information is available both online and inhouse: skills and interest inventories, industry and job market information, employment trends, resumé and cover letter writing, interviewing  and job search skills.
