Attention current MS SDM Students!

We are happy to announce that we are bringing back our MS SDM Career Advising sessions for the Fall and Spring semesters! In these Advising sessions, MS SDM Faculty and Alumni meet with current students for the chance to voice their aspirations and questions about life in the design world post-graduation. This year, Career Advising sessions will be conducted in small groups in 45-minute virtual sessions.

For the Fall, Career Advising will be offered for the following two weeks:
Week 1: October 18th – 22nd
Week 2: October 25th – 29th

You can sign up to join in on these group sessions by End of Day Friday, October 8 using the Career Advising Sign-Up Form sent to your email! You may attend up to 2 group sessions with the Advisors of your choice. Please see the PDF attachment for Advisor brief bios and time slots. Once the deadline has passed, we will share with you the schedule for Career Advising, including the Zoom Links to join the sessions.

In advance of your sessions, we recommend you polish your resume and develop a set of career advising questions. When we confirm your times, we will share a Google folder in order for you and your student group to upload your documents (which will be shared with your advisor one week prior to the session).

You can find some useful resources about resume writing under Guides in the Graduate Career Resources page of The New School website here. You can also sign up for 1:1 appointments with the Graduate Career Office Staff (Hope Newman) or career office events/workshops at newschool.edu/hirenew. Please also see the attached flyer for Fall Graduate Career Office Events in your inbox.

A big thank you to Samantha Garnett (Class of 2023), a new MS SDM Program Student Assistant, for organizing the MS SDM’s Fall Career Advising! If you have any questions please direct them to MSSDMDirector@newschool.edu
