Appointments (Year-round)

Schedule an individualized 30-minute career advising appointment by following these steps:

  • Login to the Wagner Career Directory
  • On the righthand side of your home page, scroll down to the Appointments section and click “Request an Appointment with a Career Advisor"
  • Use any desired filters (or leave them all blank to see all available appointment times) then click “Check Availability”
  • Click on the name of the career advisor for your desired appointment time
  • Select the ‘Type’ field (Phone/Virtual/In Person) as applicable, and provide as much detail as possible in the last box, then click “Submit Request”

What You Need to Know: Appointments fill up quickly! Schedule an appointment at least one week before you’d like to meet with an advisor. In person appointments will only be available for current students during Fall 2021 until further notice (given current public health guidelines at NYU).

Incoming Students: You will receive access to request appointments on your first day of classes.

 

Please schedule a 30-minute career advising appointment by following the above steps and logging into the Wagner Career Directory. Current students can also meet in person and visit weekly drop-ins (in person) during the Fall semester. Students and alumni can also reach out with time-sensitive needs or questions by emailing us (wagner.ocs@nyu.edu). Additional advising availability and career resources may be available with our Graduate Student Career Development team partners at NYU Wasserman (gradstudentcareer@nyu.edu). And don't forget to connect to current NYU Wagner students, alumni, and faculty on LinkedIn and NYU's Violet Network here.
