We also encourage families to get involved in the Bard Family Network.
We are here to help your student explore career options, determine their career goals, build a strong resume, and write impactful cover letters. We provide many resources for researching job and internship leads.
Please visit our calendar of events. We also invite all students to meet with us personally and you can encourage your student to schedule an appointment with us.
Over the years, many family members have offered to help the Career Development Office. Some have served on information panels, given talks, or advertised at Bard for jobs or internships at their organization.
Please email us at [email protected] if you would like to list a job or internship for free on Handshake, or if you would like to help in other ways, such as speaking at an event on campus or in New York City or Washington, D.C.
If you have questions for the Career Office, please do not hesitate to contact us.
The CDO Staff
We invite you to become involved with our office via our current programming or through new opportunities with you and/or your workplace. Some of the ways in which CDO has partnered with family members have included:
- Hiring Bardians for jobs and internships: CDO can help you recruit Bard students and alumni/ae for job and internship opportunities at your place of work. Families are encouraged to send opportunities to [email protected]. CDO also welcomes family members to participate in the annual recruiting consortium in New York City.
- Career Exploration: CDO organizes a series of career exploration trips, which are site visits to the offices of Bard alumni/ae, family members, and friends of the College. These trips allow students to gain inside perspective about career paths within specific industries, tips and advice from hiring managers, opportunities to network and engage with top employers, and more. We invite you to host a site visit to your company or organization.
- Professional Development: Family members can participate in the several professional development programs CDO organizes throughout the year. These include mock interview practice; various career panels and workshops; networking opportunities with Bard families and alumni/ae; sponsorship to select career conferences; and more. We always seek to create new career-related programs, events, and opportunities for our students.
