Congratulations! You are in the final phase of your educational experience here at Pace and ready to begin participating in the many services specifically geared toward obtaining full-time employment after graduation. Some of the programs have deadlines, so paying attention to all the communication you receive from our office essential as well as noting dates published in the timelines below.
|Campus Recruiting Program (CRP)|
Each semester Career Services provides an opportunity for graduating students to interview with employers through the Campus Recruiting Program on the New York City and Westchester campuses. Students eligible for recruiting must be completing a Bachelor or Masters degree in January, June, or September 2013. If you finish classes in December 2013 you are considered a January 2014 graduate and not yet eligible for this program.
All students interested in recruiting must attend an orientation workshop held at the beginning of each semester. Registration with Career Services is necessary for participation and access to the online eRecruiting system. Information online includes participating employers, majors sought, types of positions and dates on campus. In addition, students may select the employers they wish to receive their resume, find out if they have been chosen for an interview and sign up for an interview online.
Generally, there are not a lot of employers participating in campus recruiting in fields where there is an abundance of candidates or for which there are very few vacancies within a given organization. This includes many positions in the fields of advertising, communications, investment banking, consulting, government, law enforcement, nursing and education. Although employers may come to campus to recruit in these fields, students should not rely on the Campus Recruiting Program to find employment. Therefore, students seeking these types of positions should consult early on with a Career Counselor regarding implementing a self-directed job search as well as other resources Career Services can provide.

A credential file is used to hold recommendations from professors, previous employers, and/or internship/practicum evaluations for use when applying for employment. Establishing a credential file saves a lot of time for your recommenders since they only have to write a letter for you once. It is convenient for you because you don't have to keep track of recommendation letters. Graduating Education and Nursing students are encouraged to set up a file in our office which contains your letters of reference from faculty, clinical and student teaching supervisors and employers. These letters are sent out on official Pace University forms upon your request to potential employers.The files remain active for five years.More information and forms for Credential Files >>>
