How can my company get on your on-campus recruiting schedule?
Our corporate account managers, Susan Mix and Holly Potter, begin scheduling company events in mid-April for the following academic year. Our on-campus recruiting schedule fills up quickly, and priority is given to our Corporate Partners. If you are interested in giving a presentation or conducting interviews on campus, read the On Campus Recruiting page. Then, contact your corporate account manager at (607) 255-4888.

How do I get to your Career Management Center?
We are in 202 Sage Hall. Sage Hall is at the intersection of East Avenue and Campus Road on the Cornell University Campus in Ithaca, New York.

What airport should I fly into?
The Ithaca-Tompkins Regional Airport is served by US Airways Express and Northwest Airlines. Direct or connecting flights can be made to Ithaca from many major cities. Contact information: 607-257-0456 or www.flyithaca.com. The Syracuse-Hancock International Airport is located 60 miles from Cornell-a drive of about an hour and a half. Flights to this airport are more numerous and more frequent than direct flights to Ithaca. Contact information: 315-454-8757 or www.syrairport.org

Where do I park once I get there?
We provide complimentary parking to our corporate recruiters; you may drive to any visitor parking booth and tell the attendant that you will be recruiting at Johnson to take advantage of this service, and they will provide you with a pass and instructions on where you may park.

Unfortunately there is no visitor parking in the lot adjacent to Sage Hall (Johnson does not own or manage that space). Cornell University parking regulations are strict and must be taken seriously. Please read these instructions and all parking signs thoroughly and carefully to avoid tickets.

How do I post a job for which I will not be recruiting on campus?

Use the Johnson Talent System or send a brief and clear description, with full contact information, to cmc@johnson.cornell.edu. Note in your message that you are specifically recruiting current students rather than more experienced alumni.

How do I post a job in the Alumni Job Bulletin?

How do I contact the recruiting coordinators for other schools at Cornell?
Cornell Career Services provides contact information for the other eight recruiting offices at Cornell University.

How can I reach your students during the summer break?
The school maintains a summer directory for internal use. We can help you locate students if you contact us at cmc@johnson.cornell.edu to tell us which students you are looking for and why you are trying to reach them.

How can my company become a corporate partner?
Corporate partners support and interact with the school in a variety of ways, from providing guest speakers, to sponsoring student events or donating equipment. The corporate partner program allows you to work with the school to determine the most meaningful way for you to become engaged with us. For more information, contact Ivy Stevens-Gupta, Director of Corporate Programs.
