C.U. Helps Students Find Jobs During Downturn

The slow economy has hit higher education head on, and Cornell’s graduate and undergraduate colleges are responding with full force.
The Johnson School of Management held consulting, marketing and finance career events over the summer to make the internship and job search process easier for first-year business students this fall semester.
“The students returning to campus and the incoming class will most likely face a more challenging job market than we have experienced in the last few years,” said Karin Ash, director of the school’s career management center.
“For students to be successful in this market, especially students who are desiring a job function or an industry change, they need to be very focused and persuasive in their presentation to employers,” she said.
