The Urban Planning Program offers career development resources to help students take advantage of our location in New York City and discover unmatched opportunities for jobs and internships. Career services programming includes alumni panels, workshops, visits to select public planning agencies and private consulting firms, and meeting with employers one-on-one at the Career Fair. The program connects students to alumni through the annual speed-networking event and a year-long mentorship program.
A dedicated career services advisor provides one-on-one coaching and advisement to help students set and reach their employment goals. Individualized employment strategies and practical training and assistance include basic job search techniques, résumé and cover letter preparation, interviewing skills, and salary negotiation. To ensure students have access to a variety of employment resources, we keep a database of employment possibilities, career guidance references, employment literature, and industry knowledge.
GSAPP maintains a job board to advertise open full-time, part-time, internship, and fellowship positions. In addition, a weekly updates newsletter distributed by the program advertises openings, upcoming conferences, and other professional development opportunities.
