How do I post a job or internship with the Columbia School of Social Work?
We encourage all employers to use our free online system to post job openings or internships for students or graduates. Please log in and create an account at CAREER CONNECT. You can choose whether the applicants submit their résumé and other materials through the system, or else by sending their materials directly to you.
Does the School of Social Work organize any career fairs or other events?
Yes. The Office of Career & Leadership Development co-sponsors the Citywide Master’s Level Social Work Job Fair every year in partnership with several schools of social work in the New York City area. The next Master’s Level Social Work Job Fair will be held on Friday, March 23, 2018 from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM at Columbia University’s Lerner Hall.

Employers are also welcome to visit the Columbia School of Social Work at any time, and the Office of Career and Leadership Development can arrange for you to meet with interested students through information sessions in which you present on your organization’s culture and career opportunities. Alternatively, employers may post information about job opportunities for students and alumni to review on Career Connect. For more information about partnering with the Office of Career and Leadership Development, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call (212) 851-2321.
Can I conduct interviews on campus?
Yes. The Office of Career & Leadership Development will arrange interview rooms, assist with interview scheduling, and can also play a role in helping you decide which students to interview by advertising the position via e-mail and the online system. Students will be invited to submit their applications by a certain deadline, at which point our career office will e-mail you all the applications in a single batch, after which you can choose which candidates to interview.
