The Tools to Help You Succeed

This growing archive is a result of our ongoing efforts to gather the tools and information Hunter's students require to successfully complete their computer science education and prepare for their careers in technology or continuing study. Those considering applying to Hunter's computer science program will find useful information here, too, and hopefully gain a sense of Hunter's collaborative CS experience. Learn more...

In planning for professional opportunities both during and after their undergraduate course of study, all students of the department should take advantage of the Hunter CS Majors Handbook. This web resource — authored by the Programs Manager of Hunter's Cooperman Center, Elise Harris — is a comprehensive guide to planning your professional path as a CS major. Among other invaluable functions, the Handbook will help you understand: how to take advantage of pre-professional resources offered by the College; how to conduct yourself academically in order to distinguish yourself and build strong pre-professional relationships; and how to prepare for and seek internships and jobs. It is broken out into categories based on how far along you are in your major course of study and your preparation to join the workforce. The webpage also provides links for signing up to a newsletter and event calendar that are geared towards internship-seekers. If you are a CS major and have any serious interest in becoming employed in the sector — or in pursuing other competitive paths, like graduate school — you should absolutely consult the Handbook.
