Graduate Center students and alumni have access to Vault. The Vault website will make your efforts at researching employers, industries, and career subjects infinitely easier and more efficient.
The Vault Career Insider Guides are great for getting up to speed in an industry that you don’t know a lot about (e.g., the Vault Career Launcher: Advertising and Public Relations includes a chapter-length glossary of industry terms) or getting an in-depth perspective on employers in a given industry (e.g., see the 532-page guide to the top 50 banking employers or the 1387-page guide on the top 50 management and strategy consulting firms). Once you’ve logged in and created a profile, you can download Vault’s guides as PDF files for free.
You can also use Vault to find out more about job search skills such as networking and interviewing.
If you’re a current GC student, use this link to access Vault through our institutional portal and set up a free account.
