The 4th Annual Cornell Women’s Athletics NYC Career Day
Monday, January 6, 2020


It’s back and it’s bigger than ever! Cornell Women’s Athletics is hosting its 4th Annual Career Day with an all-star line-up of 5 teams including Big Red women’s Lacrosse, Field Hockey, Soccer, Ice Hockey, and Basketball!

The NYC Career Day is an opportunity for student-athletes to build their knowledge, skills, confidence, and connections as they think about their life and career after Cornell. The day is made up of engaging sessions with guest speakers from diverse industries, interactive workshops, and the opportunity to meet and network with Cornell Alumni.

The Women’s Athletics Career Day was founded by our Lacrosse Alumnae with a mission of supporting female student-athletes to enhance their knowledge, skills, and professional network to pursue meaningful lives and careers. The results have had a lifelong impact– personal development, internship opportunities, full-time job offers and lasting connections. We are very excited to welcome women’s Ice Hockey and Basketball to the group this year.
