The STARR Career Development Center provides career counseling and on- and off-campus recruiting to Baruchs undergraduate population and for graduate students from the Weissman School of Arts and Sciences. (Separate career services are available for MBA and MS students in ZSB and SPA.See Graduate Programs/Advisement.)
A staff of professional counselors administers vocational tests, provides individual career counseling, and offers workshops on a wide array of career-related topics including job search, interviewing techniques, resume writing and networking. Students are encouraged to have their resumes reviewed by peer counselors or to participate in a videotaped mock interview.
Corporate relations staff invites recruiters, collects resumes, and arranges schedules for hundreds of companies that come to campus to interview Baruch students regardless of major. Companies include representatives from most areas of business including accounting, finance, retail, technology, and government, social service, and non-profit organizations. Additionally, full and part-time jobs are posted on the bulletin boards, filed in binders, and posted on our website. The office posts information about internship opportunities, works with students individually and in groups to ensure that they are prepared to meet with employers, and sets up interviews on campus.
Maximizing opportunities for students to meet with potential employers, the Center sponsors several events including two Career Days and an Internship Fair. Company representatives are encouraged to come to campus for Information Sessions, to provide information about their companies, and to interact with students.Reference materials about careers and companies including print, video, and computer resources are housed in the Career Development Center.
Students are encouraged to come to the Center and to familiarize themselves with the services as soon as they enter Baruch. Faculty should feel free to visit the center or to refer students for services.
