Diversity at NJIT

CDS Diversity Statement

A core value of NJIT is that our community of faculty, staff and students work and learn in an environment that celebrates our diversity and supports all those who are a part of the NJIT family. As outlined in NJIT’s strategic plan 2020 Vision, we recognize the need to respect differences and foster inclusiveness that enriches our campus culture and extends into the surrounding region.  NJIT draws students from over 100 countries and conducts extensive outreach to women and underrepresented populations in STEM disciplines. We are proud that Diverse: Issues in Higher Education has recognized NJIT as a top producer of minority STEM graduates, including a top 100 producer of Engineering degrees awarded to African-American and Hispanic students. In addition, NJIT enrolls 25% females in its 11,400 student enrollment, an outcome from our extensive pre-college programs which contribute to expansion of educational opportunities for young urban women and men. Career Development Services (CDS) works collaboratively with student groups such as the National Society of Black Engineers, Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers, the Society of Women Engineers, and the Veteran Students Association. We encourage all students to seek professional opportunities by strengthening their job search knowledge and skills and taking advantage of the resources that we have to offer.

Resources and Services

Career Advising:

Each student is assigned a career advisor based upon his/her major.  Meeting with a career advisor helps students make informed career choices and better decisions; become more aware of interests, skills, values, and personality in relationship to career; and improve professional skills.

If your child needs assistance with deciding on a career, finding an internship, or searching for a job, CDS offers assistance with all of these areas, including:

Students can make an appointment with their career advisor by accessing their account on CDSlink.  To determine your student’s career advisor you can go to Career Advisement and Self-Assessment.  Career advising is available to all undergraduate and graduate students and alumni.

Workshops and Seminars:

CDS hosts numerous workshops and seminars each semester on a wide range of topics including Resume Writing, Job Search Strategies, Interviewing, and Business Etiquette.    Employers frequently visit campus for Information Sessions, Employer Panels, Resume Review, and Practice Interviews.  For additional information, please visit the CDS Events/Workshop Schedule.

Experiential Education:

One of the key factors that employers look for in entry-level hires is major-related work experience.  Students who graduate with major-related work experience typically receive more employment interviews and offers than those who graduate with no major-related work experience at all.  CDS offers many opportunities for your student to gain experience in his/her field while in school.  Programs include Cooperative Education, and Community and Public Service.  CDS also posts full-time, part-time, and general internship positions through our online job board, CDSlink.   

Career Fairs:

CDS hosts two career fairs each academic year to provide students with opportunities to meet with employers for full-time, part-time, co-op, internship, and summer jobs.  Over 160 quality companies attended each fair.  Visit the Career Fair page for more information about upcoming and past career fairs.

On-Campus Interviewing:

On-Campus Interviewing (OCI) is a program for graduating students.  It provides your student with the opportunity to meet one-to-one with hiring employers on campus.  During the Fall and Spring semesters, company representatives are on campus interviewing for full-time positions.  There is a simple process that your student must complete before participating in this program.  CDS encourages each student to begin this process early by attending the OCI Workshop in the second semester of junior year or first semester senior year so as to not miss out on any opportunities.  For additional information, check the On-Campus Interviewing Program Schedule.

More than 500 graduating students and recent alumni participate in OCI each semester, and OCI produces our most effective recruitment results.  Of job offers extended through NJIT recruitment services, the largest percentage, 35%, come from the OCI program.

Career Resources

Civil Engineering

The rebuilding of our infrastructure and the protection of our environment are some of the challenges that will be met by civil engineers in the 21st century. Civil engineers are essential participants in the planning, design and construction of our basic structures, including public works and large commercial projects. Public works, such as highways, bridges, tunnels, and sewage treatment plants represent a major activity of the profession. Among other specializations are transportation (asphalt and concrete pavements, traffic safety, travel demand forecasting, transportation regulations) and environmental engineering (control of emissions, wastewater treatment, solid waste disposal, and biological treatment of contaminated soils).
