Recruit On Campus

Employer Engagement Sessions

Employer Engagement Sessions are dynamic, interactive opportunities to connect with students using examples of current issues and/or trends in the field that are changing industry practice. Employers present a topic relevant to their organization and hear how TC students connect theory to practice in assessing and analyzing organizations’ challenges. Employers bring any materials needed to engage students in meaningful discussion and active feedback. This is a lively educative experience that broadens the traditional student-employer recruitment practice and allows the employer to observe, first-hand, the skills and competencies coming out of the TC classroom. It is also a wonderful opportunity to capture student’s critical thinking skills and build relationships with TC talent. To submit a topic and schedule an Employer Engagement Session, please email Christina Badini at Christina.Badini@tc.columbia.edu.

Employer Information Sessions

Utilizing a more traditional presentation model, employers can showcase their organization and highlight specific job career opportunities through an employer-led presentation arranged by Career Education & Professional Development (CEPD). Information sessions typically last one hour and include a brief presentation and a question and answer period. If you would like to host an information session, please email employerrelations@tc.columbia.edu or call 212.678.3140.

Networking Nights

Teachers College Career Education & Professional Development wants to connect you directly to students and alumni interested in your sector. Our networking event series is focused around specific sectors that incorporate education in its vastly different modalities. Employers will have the opportunity to meet with students and alumni interested in their industry to discuss recruiting opportunities. These nights will feature approximately 10 employers on campus simultaneously at Teachers College. We are excited to debut five networking nights organized in the following general sectors.

1. EdTech/StartUps (Tuesday, January 30th)

The first session includes employers in the burgeoning edtech/startup space, including entrepreneurial ventures in instructional design, learning analytics, educational data mining and online curriculum development, teacher outreach and training, teacher community management.

2. Non-Profits and Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) (Tuesday, February 13th)

The second session focuses on non-profits and NGOs whose educational missions address social, civil, environmental or economic development issues and challenges. These NGOs and non-profits may be local, regional, or international and represent non-instructional roles in educational advocacy and capacity building in educational institutions.

3. Government, Politics, Educational Research and Policy (Tuesday, February 27)

Employers in this sector leverage comprehensive data and research to implement and impact educational policy and analysis. Employers as diverse as the NY Department of Education, think tanks, research institutes, political campaigns and social advocacy organizations look to hire students in non-instructional roles in educational research and policy.

4. Healthcare, Psychology and Behavioral Sciences (Tuesday, March 27)

This session is dedicated to a wide range of employers in the healthcare and allied professions, including science research, private industry, biotech, clinical and counseling psychology, neuroscience education and behavior studies – to name a few. The programmatic diversity of the TC curriculum across departments of human development, health and behavior studies and biobehavioral sciences make TC students a good match for the broad range of hiring in this sector.

5. Arts, Communications, Publishing and Media (Tuesday, April 10)

Employers in this sector can represent museums, libraries, digital and print media, music, fine and performing arts, and design. Organizations in this sector are experiencing rapid change in uncertain economic times yet are filled with innovative strategies for transforming the process and delivery of products in their fields.
