Our Fall 2018 career fair connects our doctoral and master’s degree graduate students with employers in government, non-profit, and policy sectors. The fair will feature both a traditional career fair with employers standing at tables talking to students, as well as presentations from individual employers.From 2:00-3:00 p.m., the Department of Citywide Administrative Services will present on the civil service exam, which is now necessary for many, if not most, types of positions with NYC government. The presentation will be tailored to the types of roles typically sought by graduate students.
