Students meet with the director of Career Development as needed for individual career advising, including graduate-school options, internship preparation, résumés, cover letters, personal statements, interview follow-up, and networking opportunities.
Throughout each semester, the director of Career Development facilitates evening career programs that are open to all List College students. These programs range from "How to Write a Résumé" and "How to Secure a Teaching Position in an NYC Congregational School" to "How to Pursue a Career in Law, Medicine, or the Nonprofit Sector." The Career Development Student Committee meets to discuss and identify the career needs of current students to ensure that evening programs are appropriate and meaningful. The director is always open to feedback and suggestions for such programs. Click here to see workshops.
Thanks to the generosity of Dr. Ruth and Charles Lefkowitz, special programming is offered twice each semester for seniors only. Senior Forums address issues especially relevant to seniors. A special gift, also made possible by the Lefkowitz Fund, is given to seniors to assist their career search. Click here to see Senior Forums.
If you're interested in a career in law, medicine, politics, education, the rabbinate, finance, or art, the director of Career Development can put you in touch with an alum or board member who is established in that field. An increasingly strong aspect of career services at List College is the involvement of List College alumni and board members. In addition to networking with current students and helping them secure internships and post-graduation positions, alumni and board members attend and often facilitate career sessions.
