Career Advising

Career Advising

At Beyond Barnard, Career Advisors are available to meet with students and alumnae for 50-minute advising appointments. Download the Handshake app on your iPhone or Android, or schedule an appointment at MillieCAREERS.

Whether you intend upon on pursuing a career in academia, industry, nonprofits, or government, we are here to support you. Advisors can discuss topics ranging from career exploration, to job document preparation, networking, interviewing, negotiation, and more. If you have questions about career advising, please email beyondbarnard@barnard.edu.

Career Assessments Tools:

Self-assessments can help you determine which careers are best suited for you by taking stock of your skills, interests, personality, and values. At Beyond Barnard, you have the opportunity to take the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and the Strong Interest Inventory. If you are interested in taking an assessment, please make an appointment with a Career Advisor.
