The Career and Professional Development Institute (CPDI) offers a number of services to students and alumni including individual career counseling, internship and job opportunities, resume writing, career fairs and workshops aimed at developing the professional identity of students and alumni.

Students can participate in one of programs (Explorer Program, CPDI Internship Program, CPDI Senior Recruitment Program, Senior Experience), attend workshops, search CCNY Career Connections for job/internship opportunities, access valuable career information on our website, attend employer on-campus events or schedule an appointment to meet with a career counselor to discuss a personal career situation.
