The Office of Career Development serves as a liaison between industry professionals and the College's talented students and alumni. Career Development staff work closely with U.S.-based and international employers to educate future generations of artists, designers, and creative professionals. This outreach supports our Internship for Credit program, annual career fair, educational programming and recruiting events. The following resources are designed to connect industry with SVA talent.


If you are interested in hiring a student or alumnus/a for a job, internship, or freelance opportunity, register as an employer on the SVA Job Board and post your available position. Visit www.collegecentral.com/sva, click on “Employers” and then “Create Account”.  On this page, you will see instructions on how to register and post. Once you receive your access ID and password (within one business day), you can log in to post opportunities. 


Recruiters, hiring managers, and creatives can visit SVA Portfolios to search an exclusive portfolio network of SVA students and alumni. Search by creative field, major, students or alumni, and other criteria to discover talent and connect with the SVA community.


Career Development manages the College's Internship for Credit Program, allowing qualified Juniors and Seniors to gain hands-on experience working with creative professionals. Visit the Employer/Host Guide to Internships for details and important deadlines. 


Career Development regularly hosts on-campus industry events including company presentations, portfolio reviews, and job and internship fairs. For more information, please contact Career Development at 212-592-2370 or cd@sva.edu.
