Companies Here’s a secret: 70-80% of the job market is hidden – that is, it’s never posted publicly. The vast majority of hiring is done by friends and acquaintances hiring other trusted friends and acquaintances. One of the greatest advantages of going to King’s, therefore, is the diverse professional network you can build during your four years here. Most of that large network comes from the growing alumni population working in New York City. Over 58% of the Class of 2015 stayed in the New York City area after graduation, marking an increase over the Class of 2014 by 10%. Here’s where some of them are working:

Internships At King’s, we have a bias toward action that encourages students to explore their fields of interest in practice. As we say, the classroom is where you learn ideas and theories, but the city is the laboratory where you put those to the test. Therefore, in addition to meeting with an OVCD career coach, students are encouraged to build their way forward through prototypes – from informational interviews to marketplace visits to internships – so they can try out careers before they graduate and enter the workforce. Here are some of the internships students have had in the past year:
