Creating your future

The SVA Career Development office is open Monday through Friday from 10:00am to 3:00pm. As we consider the evolving health crisis and the College’s operational status, we are committed to providing ongoing career services in the best ways possible during this unique time. If you need to contact us, please email us at cd@sva.edu.

Career Counseling will continue with virtual sessions held over Zoom. Priority will be given to seniors and second-year graduate students. See the Career Counseling section below to schedule an appointment.

We are also currently offering Virtual Office Hours every Thursday from 10:00am to 11:00am. During this time, students can drop into an open Zoom meeting with a career counselor without an appointment. Please email cd@sva.edu for instructions on accessing the Virtual Office Hours sign-in form.


SVA Career Development supports students and alumni in building their professional networks while providing them with the information and resources they need to prosper as creative professionals. In addition to offering educational workshops and career counseling, the office facilitates industry networking opportunities that directly connect students with professionals. Our Internship for Credit Program provides opportunities for students to work with creative professionals at top New York City-based agencies, as well as in their home cities over the summer.

Recruiters from top creative companies visit campus to meet with students, review portfolios and promote their employment opportunities through the College's exclusive Online Job Board.
