The colleges of Arts & Sciences and Human Ecology will offer upperclassmen an opportunity to interview with potential employers through the annual New York Recruiting Consortium Jan. 11.
The off-campus program connects juniors and seniors with interviews for full-time employment and internships with employers based in the New York City area. The companies attending represent a variety of fields, such as consulting, education, finance, health services, legal services, medical research, nonprofits and publishing,
Cornell students attending will join peers from Bard College, Brown University, Connecticut College, Swarthmore College, Trinity College, Union College and William & Mary for the event.
The selective process to attend NYRC consists of an orientation session, application of resumes and cover letters and culminates on Jan. 11 with interviews held in New York City.
“NYRC is great because it provides students the opportunity to potentially have multiple interviews with multiple employers all in one day,” said Nicole Moss, program coordinator for Arts & Sciences Career Development. “This year is particularly unique because for the first time, we will be taking applications for funding requests (only for A&S students) to help students who have financial barriers to attending be able to take advantage of this opportunity.”
Students interested in the event should attend the orientation at 4:35 p.m. Oct. 25 in 142 Goldwin Smith Hall. Registration is available on Handshake. More information is available on the Arts & Sciences Career Development website.
