Hire & Engage with Bloustein Students!

Are you are looking to hire someone with the skills and competence needed to conduct statistical analysis, dive into a complex research project, write clear and concise memos and reports, perform program evaluations, analyze financial information, or understand the political and economic factors that drive public policy and organizational management?

Did you know the Bloustein School’s graduate urban planning program is ranked #3 the nation among schools of planning and accredited by the Association of Collegiate Schools of Planning (ASCP) and the Planning Accreditation Board (PAB)? The public policy program is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Public Affairs and Administration (NASPAA), and the school is a leader in areas such as smart growth, transportation policy, workforce development, urban redevelopment, energy and environmental policy, public health, and conflict resolution. Additionally, we just introduced our Master of Public Informatics program, providing students with competencies needed in public informatics, including statistics, programming, data management, data analytics, visualization, spatial analysis, applications and the integration of these skills.

We invite you to partner with the Bloustein School – our students and graduates are highly diverse, skilled and eager to contribute their talents. We offer a number of ways to connect with our students and alumni:

  • Posting Job and Internship opportunities onto our Job Board – simply send Andrea Garrido your posting by email and we’ll ensure it’s distributed to our students and strong alumni network.
  • Internships – Bloustein works with a multitude of agencies and organizations offering quality graduate-level internships. Our Master of Public Policy (MPP) program requires students to complete an Academic Field Experience (AFE) in their areas of interest which include community development and urban policy, budget and finance, economics, education, environment, health, labor workforce, management, quantitative analysis/statistics, non-profit management, political processes and institutions, social justice and advocacy, social policy and women’s issues. Our Urban Planning (Master of City and Regional Planning (MCRP)) students who concentrate in design and development/redevelopment, international development, transportation policy and planning, community development and housing, and environmental, human health and land use planning also seek internships, as do our Master of Public Informatics (MPI) students who will bring a critical voice and deep understanding of context to this emerging field.
  • Host an on-campus Information Session – advertise opportunities and showcase your organization’s mission and culture by leading an information session on campus. We will secure space and market your event!
  • Participate in a Job Talk or Panel Discussion – Talk to students about your job and career path or share your experience or knowledge of specialty areas of interest with future planning and policy professionals.
  • Engage students via a Planning Studio project or a Policy Research Practicuum which enable students to analyze real-world issue for a real client and develop real solutions.
  • Employer Site Visits – raise the profile of your organization by hosting a small group of students and alumni for an informational site visit to get a first-hand look at your organization and the opportunities available. This is an especially good option for employers on the train or bus line!
  • Bloustein Career and Internship Fair – participate in our career fair on October 25, 2019. Email Andrea Garrido if interested!
