Career Resources

NYUAD alumni have full access to Career Development Center resources like advising, jobs and recruiting, and events.

The NYUAD Class of 2018 had a 97% placement rate. Read more about our graduate outcomes.


Whether you are finding your first job, applying to graduate school, or transitioning to a new career, NYUAD CDC advisors are always happy to help. Log in to Handshake and select "Appointments" under the Career Center tab to schedule your advising appointment. Advising is available through in-person or virtual sessions. CDC counselors and advisors are trained to help you navigate all aspects of your career, including career planning and goal setting, developing professional materials (CVs, cover letters, applications, personal statements, etc.), creating a job search strategy, mock interviews, and negotiating job offers.

Jobs and Recruiting

Handshake is NYU’s jobs and recruitment platform. As alumni of NYU, you have full access to the jobs, events, and resources posted on Handshake.

All CDC events are open to NYUAD alumni. Attend Career Fairs, Graduate School Weekend, or Networking Nights to discover the opportunities open to you. Most CDC events are currently held in-person in Abu Dhabi, but some workshops, panels, and employer sessions may be available virtually. Check Handshake for upcoming virtual events.
