FIMS Career Services

Do you worry about where your degree will ultimately lead you?

FIMS has over 20-years of history graduating students who go on to excel in a wide variety of industries, building careers in the non-profit sector, marketing, advertising, public relations, social justice, entertainment, journalism, media production and more.

But the job and economic landscape just keep changing, presenting new challenges for young professionals entering the marketplace for the first time. In FIMS we recognize that, and the faculty is taking steps to provide even more customized, in-house assistance to our students.

FIMS Career Services is a recently established service available to FIMS undergraduate students.
