Bank Street student and Resume

"I attended Bank Street over 10 years ago and am so fortunate to have had the experience. Now, as the director of an elementary school in the position to hire teachers, I only hire Bank Street graduates. I know they are the very best!" 
   — Suzanne, Bank Street alumna

The Career Services Office serves as a career resource and information center. Career Services are provided to alumni and to students matriculated in degree programs. Students are encouraged to take advantage of the variety of services the office has to offer at the beginning of their matriculation.

Services and resources include listings of current job openings, a reference book library, a collection of sample cover letters and résumés, and school directories. Résumé and interview skills workshops are offered throughout the year; check the schedule of upcoming events. Students are encouraged to meet with the director to discuss strategies to be used during the job search process, such as how to organize a job search, networking, and researching schools, institutions and agencies.
