Career Paths

ILR student attending a career fair

Our goal at ILR Career Services is to provide outstanding service in a welcoming environment. Whether you're an undergraduate or graduate student, from the moment you enter the School of ILR, we'll help you think about what you might do after leaving Cornell. If you're an employer, we’ll work with you to reach our students and develop a relationship with our office. If you're an alum, we're here to assist you with networking opportunities, resume critiques, or general career advice if you're interested in career transition. We work in conjunction with Cornell Career Services, and provide a wealth of information specifically geared towards students, alumni, faculty, employers, and families in the ILR community. Please visit 201 Ives Hall to meet the ILR Career Services Staff, and stop by often. 

We invite all students to make use of our experience and resources, to:

  • Understand your interests and abilities
  • Define and explore your options
  • Gain experience in a career-related area
  • Develop networks with ILR alumni
  • Refine your skills
  • Understand the process of searching for a job
  • Get a strong start in achieving your work goals
  • Receive a resume review
  • Participate in career advising and counseling

Alumni, find out what resources are available to you, ways you can assist current students as a career mentor, and how to connect with other alumni here.
