Career Placement

Engineering Management will Support you Throughout the Career Search Process

The Cornell Engineering Management program offers personalized career support and advising for each student. Prior to even arriving at Cornell, we work with each student to understand their career goals and work together with them on their resume, cover letter, and career application plan. We organize career treks down to New York City to meet with alumni in their current roles. Past visits have included visits with alumni at Facebook, McKinsey, Goldman Sachs, Lyft, and Ernst and Young.

In addition, each Engineering Management student takes ENMGT 6090 “Professional and Leadership Development for Engineering Managers” to help work with students on teams and individually on informational interviews, mock interviews, and negotiation techniques. We also work closely with Cornell Engineering Career Center on alumni networking, job search strategies, career fair preparation, interviewing and more. They offer a wide array of services including daily drop-in hours, pre-semester programs, and more.
