We're pleased to have you visit our site and learn about the many career-related programs and services available to your son/daughter during their time at Rensselaer. Here in the CCPD, we believe that you play an important role in helping to define and shape your son or daughter's future and in helping him/her achieve their dreams. You are also often the very first person your son or daughter will turn to for advice or to ask career questions like:

  • What should I major in?
  • What can I do with a major in....?
  • What industries could I work in?
  • Where could I find a co-op job?
  • Do you think I can switch my major?

Helping to provide answers to these questions is where we come in. We will work to help your son/daughter develop life-long career management skills, but we'll need a little help from you. Please encourage your son or daughter to take full advantage of the many workshops held each semester on a wide range of topics. In addition, our Calendar of Events, is the place to look for CCPD events, including: the CCPD spring career fair, workshops, special events and seminars.

Still looking for more information? Check out our Career Navigator Handout Series which provides specific career information on everything from writing a resume to finding a summer job and so much more!

When your son or daughter has a question or needs help with their resume or job search, one of our career counselors is available Monday through Friday during Walk-in Hours.  Longer appointments can also be scheduled M-F using the Online Appointment Scheduler.

To take full advantage of on-campus recruiting activities (interviewing for summer, co-op and full-time job opportunities)  please encourage your son/daughter to activate their JobLink Account annually at the beginning of the fall semester.

With careful planning and a vision for the future, we'll work together to help your son or daughter realize his or her dreams!
