The Office of Career Services offers students and alumni of The New School for Social Research a wide array
of information about the both academic and the non-academic job markets and points of access to both. All of
our services, resources, and announcements are published here on our blog, “NSSR Career Hub.”
We hold regular workshops on: the job search process; writing a curriculum vitae, r√©sum√©, and cover letter;
job interviewing and networking techniques; how to get teaching jobs while you’re in graduate school;
applying for external research funding; how to prepare a conference abstract and presentation; how to create
a teaching portfolio or a research statement; and academic publishing. We sponsor speakers and events
related to employment outside of academia. Check out our job search and externalfundingopportunities
Visit the blog to see what’s going on right now. Some information is maintained permanently here on the
website: Job Search Tools and Strategies is a step-by-step guide to getting a job in or outside academia;
Job Search Links are posted, categorized by type and discipline, that direct students toward career resources
in their fields.
Resources for finding external funding opportunities are published on our External Funding website. We provide
links to funding organizations categorized by discipline; a spreadsheet listing funding organizations searchable
by discipline, kind of funding and many more criteria; an article on the Art of Writing Proposals, ; and other
general information about grants and how to obtain them.
We have also compiled some specific databases of resources likely to be of interest to NSSR students. The
databases available so far: Teaching Institutions in the Tristate area; Non-Profit Organizations in NYC;
Financial Firms in NYC; Economic Internships; Conferences; Jobs for Psychology MAs; and Think Tanks in NYC.
