Did you know that in 2023, 94 percent of Pace bachelor’s graduates and 97 percent of our master’s graduates were employed or hitting the books again within six months of tossing their caps? Or that for the past five years, Pace graduates have been employed at a rate ten percent higher than the national average? And last year, our students completed over 9,000 internships, co-ops, and more!

Pace’s commitment to getting students ready for their careers has even earned us the top spot among private colleges from Forage in experiential learning. Much of this success comes from the dedicated support and resources from Pace Career Services.

Here are some tips to take advantage of Pace’s unparalleled Career Services:

1. Engage Early

Begin career planning sooner rather than later. It's never too early to start envisioning your career trajectory. Beyond the support provided by the specialized Career Services staff, each school at Pace has a dedicated career counseling team.

2. Utilize Online Resources and Tools

Take advantage of tools and platforms on your career-planning journey. Try out Handshake for job listings or Interstride for international students; the AI-powered resume tool Resume Worded; the innovative interview prep tool Big Interview; and RSVP for events at the Virtual Career Center.

3. Join a Career Community

Career Communities group careers by common interests, activities, skills, or qualifications. When you join a Career Community, you can connect with like-minded people, explore related careers, and pursue goals that match your interests.

4. Earn a Digital Badge

Optimize your resume with a digital badge from one of Career Services’ programs: ASPIRE (domestic students), INSPIRE (international students), or Customer Service for Students.

5. Network

Check out Career Services’ resources on expanding your community and get mentored by Pace alumni through the Alumni Mentoring Network.

With unequalled success rates and comprehensive support, Career Services helps students get a jumpstart on their career, wherever they are in their journey. Take advantage of these resources that are helping Pace lead the way in student success.
