NYIT follows the careers of its graduates with great interest. Questionnaires are mailed to alumni, and the results are compared to U.S. Department of Labor statistics and quarterly reports of the Placement Council. Ninety-five percent of NYIT students get jobs in their chosen fields or attend graduate school within six months of graduation. Alumni receive the professional development benefit of a relationship with NYIT's Office of Career Services for life. Alumni searching for new employment opportunities may take advantage of Handshake, NYIT's new online career portal, which allows users to schedule appointments with a career adviser, upload résumés, search for employers, apply for jobs, view events and fairs, and access career resources.
In addition, graduate and professional school advisement and referrals, in conjunction with academic schools, are provided through the Office of Career Services. NYIT alumni attend postgraduate schools throughout the world and successfully complete degree programs in every field of study.
