Faculty and Staff

The Office of Career Services welcomes NYIT faculty and staff and encourages you to partner with us and utilize the practical information and tools to assist you in advising students. By working together, faculty, staff, and Career Services can ensure the transition from student to a member of the work force is as seamless as possible.

Here are some the services we offer:

  • NEW!! Talking about careers this semester? Consider adding a session from the Career Enrichment Program  to your syllabus. Take advantage of our timely career advice in the form of a classroom presentation(s). We will customize a presentation that speaks to the needs of your class or conduct an overview of our services and resources available. Contact us to schedule a convenient workshop.
  • We can assist you with resources and integration of service-learning in your classroom.
  • We help students find the “right fit" with the FOCUS self-assessment tool. With this tool students will gain insight of their interests, skills, values, and personality.

  • Consultants for the Public Good - become a senior consultant to advise a student group tackling a community client project. 
  • Other useful resources:

    • Use the Career Plans timeline to offer suggestions to help students monitor their career development by academic year.

    • O*NET, developed and maintained by the U.S. Department of Labor, features constantly updated information for more than 1,000 job titles. It lists characteristics necessary for specific career areas related to interests, work values, and abilities as well as a list of knowledge and skills (i.e. critical thinking, writing, etc.) needed for specific jobs. All you need to do is click on "What It Takes."

    • BuzzFileUse Buzzfile to discover thousands of companies in your field. Then refine your search based on industry, location, company size. Save your list or share it with friends.

    • Uniworld: Two multinational business directories that allow you to search for U.S. firms operating in foreign countries and foreign firms operating in the U.S. Contact information contains headquarters, branches, subsidiaries, and affiliates.

    • Job Search Engines organized by industry

    • Professional Associations organized by industry

  • We help students master the job interview. There is no better way to prepare for the job interview than by experiencing an "actual" interview. At the Office of Career Services, our staff or recruiter volunteers will conduct mock interviews with your students, then provide a constructive critique of their performance and effective interview strategies.

  • We know employers who want to know you. The Office of Career Services works directly with employers, who often ask for the contact information of faculty members who could help them to identify top students. And if you have contacts within organizations or companies you think we should be engaged with, please let us know.

  • Our career fairs attract many recruiters to one event. Our fairs provide excellent opportunities for students and faculty to meet companies in their industries of choice and establish a network of contacts.

  • We assist in identifying quality internships. Internships are such an important part of your students' overall educational experience. Through our network of employers, we can help your students identify internship opportunities that will best serve them in their academic and professional pursuits.

  • We can "fill in" when you cannot meet a class by presenting a career related topic. Let us “pinch hit” for you by scheduling a career services workshop. Staff members are available to conduct a wide variety if workshops for your students, including:

  • Be knowledgeable of ethical considerations when assisting students with their job search.

We look forward to working with you throughout the year. Please encourage your students to visit the Office of Career Services early in their tenure at NYIT. Here are some tools you can use to provide career advisement to your students:
