Preparing for life after Cornell
The career coaches at the Berry Career Institute are focused on your success after you leave Cornell. In fact, our career services team will continue to work with you after you graduate because they assist both current students and alumni.
Why? It’s a big world out there and we don’t send our graduates into it without making sure they are prepared to succeed.
Take a career tour, literally, to corporations and industries big and small all over the U.S. Job shadow to see if your dream job is the right fit up close. Take an assessment to identify what careers match with your personality traits. Most importantly, get one-on-one coaching.
Take a deeper dive into our career exploration programs.
Resumes and cover letters are more than documents outlining previous jobs and achievements. Today’s employer wants to hear your professional story. Find out how to tell your story, where to tell your story, and how to connect the dots between your experiences and your future employer’s needs.
See our best job and internship preparation advice.
Internships and research opportunities test your knowledge and provide additional experiential learning opportunities. They also look sharp on your resume and provide you with a first-hand encounter with what your future might look like if you pursue that field of study as a career.
There are lots of job opportunities out there, especially for our curious, well-rounded, and high-achieving graduates, but it can be overwhelming to know where to start your job search. That’s where our career coaches can step in and help you through the search, selection, and application process.

If you want to apply to a graduate program, we will help you prepare for it. (55% of Cornell graduates go on to complete an advanced degree.) Refine your law school applications. Get recommendation letters for med school applications. Prep for the MCAT, the LSAT, the GRE, the DAT, and many other pre-professional and graduate school examinations.
We offer many health and medical programs and have developed pathways to graduate studies.
