Admissions & Aid
While students pursuing particular majors and minors are typically enticed by the subject matter, they are oftentimes unaware of the types of jobs in their coming field, along with the skills required to excel in them. Many are unsure about the exact day-to-day of a career within a particular industry, from the company culture and salary to rigor of tasks assigned.
The Magner Career Center is especially devoted to helping its students learn first-hand about a profession and industry. We take students on field trips to a plethora of company offices, firms, and entire organizations. In doing so, our students are given the valuable chance to meet Brooklyn College alumni who work across a wide variety of industries. Our company visits give students the opportunity to network with professionals, learn plenty more about a field or company, and especially determine if it is the right fit for them. The center’s company visits span across countless fields and industries.
Some of our past visits include but are not limited to:
While visiting Discovery, students received valuable career advice from the company’s head of human resources and Brooklyn College alumna Adria Alpert Romm ’77.
Students received a virtual tour of Aon careers and learned about its branch division, work culture, and methods of task dispersion.
Under the direction of the Magner Center, students from Brooklyn College took a trip to the United Nations and learned about its branches, internship programs, division of causes, and so much more!
