    Weissman Graduate Career Services takes pride in providing individualized career services and resources for our students and alumni. We meet with students and alumni on a one-to-one basis throughout their careers to research opportunities, explore areas of interest, identify skills, hone presentations, and build strong professional networks. We examine the big-picture and carefully study the career search process with the aim to sustain or reignite our students’ career development.

    Networking is a key focus of our approach. We work closely with employers, our students, alumni and mentors to connect people who can refer, give support and provide introductions. We work with other colleges offering similar graduate programs to collaborate on career fairs and events. Our goal is to provide quality services and to develop relationships that are beneficial to our students and the companies we serve.

    We have great resources from assistance with resume and cover letter critiques, access to jobs and internships, networking with alumni, to events including career fairs, site visits, and on-campus recruitments.

  • The Master in Industrial/Organizational Psychology Student Association (MSIO Assoc.) sponsored a workshop on “How Workspace Design Can Help I/O Psych Change Behavior & How I/O Psych Can Create Better Design”. An alumnus from Teachers College, Columbia University, Michael Delfausse, and his team presented a workshop on the effects that workspace design has on human behavior.

    Baruch I/O Psychology master’s students were in attendance along with graduate students from NYU, Hofstra University, Columbia University, and the New School. Attendees were on the edge of their seats, taking notes about the potential role I/O Psychologists play when collaborating with architects and management to make change in organizations. Chairs were rearranged and attendees got a first-hand look at the challenges faced when structuring organizations in various ways.

    On November 6, 2015, the Weissman Graduate Career Services Director accompanied a group of MA in Corporate Communication students to the annual Marketing Edge Career Forum in midtown.

    “It was a very positive experience. I had deep insight into three important companies (American Express, Bank of America, and Wunderman & KBM Group), and I found that all three of the speakers were well prepared. They offered a good mix of personal narrative about their careers, information on their companies, and very practical tips on how to be considered a good candidate for their institution as well as in the job market.”

    “The I/O Industrial Career & Internship fair allowed me to network with a wide range of companies. There were many types of positions offered including different careers within HR as well as companies that dealt strictly with external consultancy. At the fair, I was able to schedule an interview with Global Brands Group, and was recently hired for their Change Management position!

  • MEET THE DEAN On October 27, 2015, a group of students from across Weissman Graduate programs shared lunch and conversation with Interim Dean Alison Griffiths.

    It was really great to meet students from the other programs and to speak with Dean Griffiths about her goals for Weissman. I enjoyed speaking with the Dean and appreciated her receptiveness to our suggestions and concerns. I was especially excited to learn about her efforts to forge more global connections for our programs. I hope that we can continue to keep in touch with our peers in the other Weissman graduate programs. It seems like we would have much to learn from each other. - STEPHANIE THOMPSON, MA ARTS ADMINISTRATION, ’17
