Preparing for a Career in National Security

Career Resources

Students at NYU School of Law are assisted in their job search by the most extensive placement program in the country. The Office of Career Services (OCS), together with the Public Interest Law Center (PILC), organizes numerous recruiting programs, panels and workshops, practice interview programs, and individual counseling. OCS and PILC counsel students interested in national security careers in both the private and public/non-profit sectors. Both OCS and PILC have a variety of materials for current students pursuing public sector national security careers, including the Government Handbook.

In addition, through its extensive network and programming, the Reiss Center on Law and Security works to enhance mentorship opportunities and provide exposure to a diverse range of career experiences for students interested in national security careers.
