The Bard Career Development Office (CDO)

assists students with career planning. Bardians may schedule individual appointments or attend any of the workshops and programs offered throughout the year.

Our Mission

The Bard College Career Development Office (CDO) helps students translate their liberal arts education to the workplace.  CDO staff members meet with students one-on-one throughout their college life and after graduation, helping students connect their skills, interests and values to a career path. In addition to career counseling, job and internship guidance, and career events that include an annual recruiting consortium in NYC, CDO offers many online resources that provide job and internship postings, career exploration assessments, and interview coaching. Informal talks, career-specific panels, and formal symposia take place throughout the year to help students learn about various professions and connect with alumni/ae and employers.
