* 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.

Attention Students: 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.  If you have any questions or are uncertain about the validity of an employer email, please contact the CCPD at 518-276-6234 or via email.

Future Plans Survey for the Class of 2017: Includes August 2016, December 2016 and May 2017 Graduates. Please complete the CCPD Future Plans Survey when you have confirmed your post-graduation plans. This data is kept strictly confidential and is used to report aggregate summary information in the CCPD Annual Report. Complete your survey here!
