Dyson School students are recruited by top employers in the private sector for careers in banking and finance, marketing, management, consulting, accounting, auditing, retailing, sales, and purchasing, as well as for positions in the public and nonprofit sectors.
Because students majoring in applied economics and management are in such demand, their starting salaries are higher than the national average of business majors.
You will want to become familiar with the outstanding services provided by Cornell Career Services and the CALS Career Development Office as soon as possible—even in your freshman year. It is never too early to begin exploring career and internship opportunities by attending their career fairs, using their career libraries, and talking to alumni through the web-based Alumni Career Link.
You can also talk to career counselors and job-search coaches, learn how to write great resumés, practice your interviewing skills, or research employers and organizations.
Don't forget, too, that your advisor and other Dyson School faculty can be excellent sources of job leads.
Dyson School alumni can continue to use the services provided by the CALS Career Development Office. To review jobs posted specifically for CALS alumni or to post a job for CALS alumni, visit the alumni job postings. Alumni can also meet with a career counselor or advisor by phone or in person, and attend career-related workshops.
For detailed information and sign-up procedures for on-campus recruiting for both full-time jobs and internships, visit the CALS Career Development Office or Cornell Career Services. Don't delay! Many companies and organizations begin recruiting in early September for full-time positions and in November for internships.

Finding a summer job, internship, or volunteer opportunity can seem daunting. There are so many opportunities out there!
The CALS Career Development Office (CDO) offers a variety of resources that can help connect you to a broad array of opportunities. For example, you can search through CDO's online database of over 500 paid and unpaid, regional, national, and international opportunities. The database includes internship descriptions and contact information, and you can search for opportunities by class year, as well as by geographic location.
Links to web-based postings of internships and summer jobs, and Cornell Career Services's online library catalog can help you narrow down the many exciting options. Your faculty advisor can also be an excellent source of job leads.
Don't forget to get individual assistance from a CDO counselor. It's the perfect way to start your internship or summer job search.
Because many businesses and organizations offer only nonpaying internships for which a student must earn academic credit, we have established a special one-credit, S/U independent study option. You are not eligible for credit if you are paid.
Please see the Undergraduate Program Coordinator in 201 Warren Hall or refer to the eligibility requirements and internship contract for more information. The deadline for submitting a contract for a summer 2013 internship is June 1, 2013.
