Employers
The Starr Career Development Center partners with employers in order to connect them to Baruch College undergraduate students. Employers are invited to campus to provide information, mentoring, and employment opportunities to our highly motivated, and academically qualified students. Baruch students are tireless success-seekers and employers are impressed by their technical skills and drive and return year after year to access this highly qualified group of candidates. Many have significant work experience by the time they graduate and a large number work their way through college.

Alumni
The Starr Career Development Center (SCDC) partners with alumni in a number of ways. We encourage alumni to maintain connection to their alma mater, to return for services and resources, and to contribute to the professional development of current students. The SCDC hosts numerous alumni career events throughout the year and provides one-on-one career advisement upon request.

Faculty
The Starr Career Development Center recognizes the importance of forging partnerships with Baruch faculty to support our students' academic and career development. We have developed various initiatives such as the Starr Sub Program and Invited Presentations to encourage faculty members to utilize our expertise, in order to deepen students' knowledge of their career options and awareness of our career services. The Starr Career Development Center believes a strong connection with our Baruch faculty members will benefit our students in their long term career success. We invite you to contact us if you have any questions or wish to explore ways to collaborate.
Parents
College is the beginning of an exciting new chapter in the lives of both students and parents. Students must adjust to the academic and social demands of college and parents must accept the growing independence of their young adult offspring.

Career development in college begins with establishing good study habits, building relationships with fellow students, and faculty, and identifying and using important college resources like the Starr Career Development Center. Parents should encourage students to visit the Center and to start using STARRSearch, our online career management system. Check out STARR Track on our website at for more information about career development during the college years.
Financial Leadership Program
The Financial Leadership Program (FLP) is the Starr Career Development Center's training initiative focused on preparing students for careers in the financial services industry and other top financial analyst programs. To achieve the program's mission, the Center provides intensive technical and career training to a select group of Baruch's top-performing students. The FLP admits 20-30 juniors each year, handpicked according to their aptitude and interest. FLP members typically have an average GPA of 3.7 (the minimum requirement is 3.5), demonstrated leadership in internship and extracurricular activities.
Pre-Law
The Max Berger Pre-law Program offers numerous opportunities to students of all majors interested in preparing for or simply exploring the possibility of a future career in the legal profession. Highlights of the program include individualized pre-law advisement, networking and mentoring, internship opportunities, writing workshops, LSAT Preparation, law school application assistance and experiential learning experiences such as mock trial and moot court. In addition, high achieving students are encouraged to apply to participate in the Max Berger Pre-law Fellows Program, a comprehensive law school preparatory program geared towards training Baruch College students to gain admission to the nation's top law schools.
Peers for Careers
The Peers for Careers Program is a highly selective leadership program that trains students to provide peer career advisement on resumes, cover letters, business correspondence, mock interviewing and more. Upon successfully completing rigorous training, Peers offer resume/cover letter review appointments, walk-in sessions, video mock interviews, and orientations to the SCDC to students using the services for the first time. Peers also facilitate workshops, co-sponsor programs, spearhead our traveling "Starr Mobile" information cart, and write weekly Career Corner articles in the Ticker. Check out the Peer website for more information, resources, career corner articles and peer video tips.
Media
The Media section of SCDC contains both videos and tutorials that are meant to give you a snapshot on career topics. The videos are tips and suggestions from fellow Baruch students on topics from attending career fairs to tying a tie. The tutorials are quick hands-on guides that you can follow along with to learn about a variety of useful resources at your fingertips. We encourage you to view them all at least once and to refer back to them in a pinch.
