The mission of the Office of Career Services and Cooperative Education is to provide lifelong career development and networking opportunities for all of our nearly 121,000 and counting alumni, wherever they are on their career path. Using a variety of tools from individual counseling to webinars to networking events, our career advisors help graduates of all experience levels determine their career path, their job search plan, or ways to network with other RIT Tigers.
The RIT Office of Career Services and Cooperative Education provides programs, services and resources for recent graduates, first-time career changers, mid-life career changers, or any alumnus/a engaged in a job search. We want you to consider our office a primary resource for career information and job search assistance. Whatever your needs, we're here to help you take your career to the next level.
Our office develops and expands recruiting relationships with employers to create opportunities and list job openings for RIT alumni, at entry and experienced levels.

We're seeking motivated alumni volunteers who are as enthusiastic about RIT as we are. If you are enjoying success in your career and would like to participate in the career development of our current students, we invite you to contact us. You can make a significant contribution to RIT by volunteering time and talent in the Career Services area, as a Professional Network advisor, mock interviewer, or workshop panelist. Your time commitment is minimal, but the impact lasts a lifetime.
Advisors are available to meet with alumni on a one-on-one basis based on your field of interest, to help with career and employment matters, including job search, making a career change, and dealing with layoff or downsizing issues. Our Success Skills workshops prepare alumni for their job search, and are offered on site throughout the year, as well as online through narrated presentations.
