Cornell Tech students are more than just engineers or business students; at heart they are inventors and entrepreneurs. Scrappy and forward looking, they aim to use their analytic abilities and expertise to tackle complex problems and deliver products to market.
Upon graduation, our students form their own ventures or work for companies that foster entrepreneurial spirit in a variety of industries within the tech sector.
Career Management at Cornell Tech is focused on maximizing the career potential of our graduates, regardless of their path. We work with students one-on-one to develop a career plan not just post graduation, but also for their long term career trajectory. Consistent with the mission of Cornell Tech, we experiment and innovate to ensure our programming is focused on high-value activities, both for students and employers.
As most of our students pursue careers in tech, we focus on practicing technical interviews, often conducted by experienced external practitioners. We strive to expand our students’ networks within the tech ecosystem by inviting prospective employers, experienced entrepreneurs and venture capitalists to campus for tech talks instead of traditional recruiting presentations. Twice a year, we run on-campus blitz interviewing events, and use an internally-developed algorithm to match employers and students for blitz style interviews. See the “For Employers” section to learn more about ways to connect with them.
The best way for companies and other external constituents to get to know our students is simply to spend some time with them. Giving a talk at our campus in the heart of New York City or hosting a company visit are some of the ways to connect with our students. At Cornell Tech, we don’t observe rigid recruitment periods or elaborate logistical procedures. Please see For Employers section to learn about ways to engage with our students.
Employers should submit job descriptions (full-time and internships) here.
