* Welcome!

We’re here to help you explore, plan, and achieve your career goals – from your first year through graduation.

The Center for Career and Professional Development (CCPD) will help you take charge of and manage your future — from writing a resumé and polishing job interview skills to researching career options and potential employers.

The CCPD offers a comprehensive program of career and professional development activities, co-op, internship, and full-time job search activities to both undergraduate and graduate students.

Rensselaer students have 24-hour access to job postings and career-related resources via the Web through JobLink.

The Balancing Act: the Job Search at the End of the Semester
Thursday 4/28 at 12pm in the CCPD, DCC 209

Trying to find the balance between a job search and being successful with end of the year responsibilities can cause extra stress during an already tough time. Join Keith Anderson and the CCPD to discuss strategies for coping and making a game plan to be successful in class and in the job search.

Food will be served!

RSVP's are encouraged, but not required. RSVP to the events in JobLink!

Be Aware of Employer Email Scams: We are aware that many students are receiving emails from people identifying themselves as employers, saying the "Career Center sent us your resume."  Please do not engage with these individuals to share your information and alert the CCPD immediately.  Only validated employers have access to our online Resume Books.  Always be cautious of an email regarding employment that comes from a non-corporate email address

Class of 2016: Includes August 2015, December 2015 and May 2016 Graduates. Complete your survey here!

ATTENTION STUDENTS PLANNING TO GO ON CO-OP!!

Once you have an official offer – take note of the next steps:

  • Forward a copy of official offer letter and your resume to co-op@rpi.edu
  • Attend a required co-op briefing – dates are listed in JobLink under “Events” and then under “Workshops”

To maintain your student status, you will have to register your co-op with the CCPD.  Your offer letter must be on company letterhead or from an official company email and must contain your start date, end date, rate of pay and a brief description of the work you will be doing.  At your briefing you will get the paperwork needed to begin the registration process.   Your co-op is first approved by our office – and then approved by your academic advisor.  Once your paperwork has been turned into our office, we will register you for your co-op. 

If you have any questions, contact Dawn Cairns-Weaver, Director of the Co-op Program, at cairnd@rpi.edu.

*Graduate student co-op approval process includes approval from your GPD as well as OGE.

**International students required approval from ISSS
