    Career Services

    The Office of Career Services offers students and alumni of The New School for Social Research a wide array of information on and resources for the academic and nonacademic job markets and points of access to both. A wide range of events and programs — as well as one-on-one advising — are planned by the associate director for Graduate Career Success (who is dedicated to New School for Social Research students). Job market workshops and series are provided multiple times per year, and Career Services works to plan dedicated recruiting events with organizations in a broad range of fields.

    Our master's and doctoral students pursue careers in a number of fields. They work in academia, nonprofits, government, and the for-profit sector. Departments track recent outcomes (which can be viewed within each program).

    Several Web resources are maintained here on the NSSR site. Job Search Tools and Strategies is a step-by-step guide to getting a job in or outside of academia. Job listings and opportunities for students to prepare for their career are regularly shared through NSSRNews:Weekly, provided every Thursday to the New School for Social Research community.

    In addition, we provide links to funding organizations categorized by discipline and a spreadsheet listing funding organizations searchable by discipline, kind of funding, and many more criteria. We have also compiled databases of resources likely to be of particular interest to NSSR students. The databases available so far are Teaching Institutions in the Tristate Area; Nonprofit Organizations in NYC; Financial Firms in NYC; Economic Internships; Conferences; Jobs for Psychology MAs; and Think Tanks in NYC.
