RIT's Office of Career Services and Cooperative Education provides effective, high-quality services to RIT students, alumni, and employer partners.

Undergraduate and graduate students, as well as alumni, are supported throughout their career development and job search for securing on-campus, co-op, internship, and full-time jobs.
