The Career Development Center at NYU Abu Dhabi empowers students to take the first steps and next steps along meaningful career paths. We seek to understand each student's goals and needs in order to help them achieve their own success. From self-discovery of skills and interests, all the way to acclimation to the world of work, we provide guidance each step of the way.
Our counselors and advisors are equipped to help you navigate your career: the in-betweenness and uncertainty you may face in your career decisions, self-discovery of your skills and interests, development of your professional skills, preparation for graduate school, exploration of scholarships and prestigious awards, and acclimation to the world of work.
Some of the topics we can cover include:
Our events, big and small, are a great way to actively explore career topics, meet professionals in your area of interest, and develop skills. Our events and workshops include:
We provide a wide array of programs and services that empower students to take ownership of their ongoing career development process, such as:
