News & Announcements
Baruch College’s Weissman School of Arts and Sciences hosted our inaugural Industrial/Organizational Psychology Career & Internship Fair on Wednesday, November 11, 2015. The Fair was a great success. In addition to Weissmans’s own MS students, nine area colleges were invited to join their peers at Baruch. Over 135 graduate students and alumni attended and and met recruiters from organizations including Barnes & Noble, Beacon Hill Staffing , CCA, Inc., CUNY, Global Brands Groups, Hudson's Bay Company-Saks Fifth Avenue, Independence Care System, JetBlue Airways, MDRC, MTA New York City Transit, NYS Dept. of Civil Service, Prudential, SCO Family Services, and Sports & Arts in School's Foundation.
Shortly after the fair, several companies and many students provided very positive feedback:
• Lieberman Research Inc., posted a photo of the event on their LinkedIn page and is planning a company-presentation on campus.
• Retensa expressed an interest in conducting on-campus interviews for both our I/O and Corporate Communication graduate students for summer internships.
• Banyak Group and Global Brands Group among others, have identified and scheduled interviews with students.
On November 6, 2015, a group of MA in Corporate Communication students and Weissman’s Graduate Career Services Director went to the annual Marketing Edge Career Forum in midtown.
“It was a very positive experience. I had deep insight into three important companies (American Express, Bank of America, and Wunderman & KBM Group), and I found that all three of the speakers were well prepared. They offered a good mix of personal narrative about their careers, information on their companies, and very practical tips on how to be considered a good candidate for their institution as well as in the job market.”
Chiara Basso, MA, Corporate Communication, ‘17
“The fair helped me in exploring additional career options and made me realize that marketing might be another career choice and something I would like to do.”

"Throughout my tenure in the Industrial/Organizational Psychology master’s program, Elyse Mendel, the Director of Weissman Graduate Career Services, has helped me revise my resume and cover letter, and prepare me for my interviews. With that support, I was able to obtain several internships. My current internship is with City 5 Consulting as an Organizational Development Specialist. This experience has allowed me to learn recruiting, training and employee retention. Because of this experience, I was recently offered an internship with Young & Rubicam Group (Y&R) as a Global HR Apprentice, where I will work on talent recruitment, development and other management initiatives. I am looking forward to working for a global company like Y&R, and I believe that Weissman Graduate Career Services can really help students achieve their career aspirations, like it has for me!"
