Graduate School of Education
The Office of Career Services is dedicated to helping you -- future educators, psychologists, and mental health professionals -- with all stages of your career journey.
Services We Offer:
CareerLink is our online job and internship database that is exclusive to Fordham students. Log in using your my.fordham information. Job opportunities are regularly posted and are updated often, especially in the spring!
Career Counseling Appointments
Appointments are available either in person or by phone to help you with anything from career guidance and mock interviews to resume and cover letter review. Schedule an appointment via CareerLink.
We know that as graduate students, your schedules are busy, and it is not always possible to come in person for a resume review. You may email as a Word attachment your resume, cover letter, application essays, and any other documents to firstname.lastname@example.org for review. We will review the documents, make suggestions, and return them to you within three University business days during the school year. Please allow eight business days during the summer (July-August).

Employer Information Sessions
Information Sessions are great way to learn more about schools and educational organizations, and network one on one with employers in a small group setting.
On Campus Recruiting
OCR takes place throughout the year. View the schedule, and apply for interesting jobs via CareerLink. Before participating in OCR, you are required to have your resume reviewed, either in person or via email.
During the year, the Office of Career Services and GSE also host special events with employers, students, and alumni. Events can include employer panels, alumni networking events, and roundtables.
