From choosing a major and exploring career possibilities to writing a resume and acing an interview, our mission is not just to help you land an internship or job, but to assist you in developing the tools that will serve your professional life long after you toss your mortarboard in the air.
There’s no right time to start thinking post-college plans, but, in most cases, the earlier, the better. We offer a wide range of career-related services and events just for BU students and alumni, and we’ve partnered with employers from all sectors, and from around the country and the world, looking to recruit from our community.
Our seasoned staff and online resources can help you master critical skills such as preparing and delivering an elevator pitch, networking, and negotiating an offer, as well as strategies to pursue internships, full-time jobs, and graduate study. We’ll advise you on the best ways to connect with successful alumni—through the BU Alumni Association’s Career Advisory Network—who are eager to share their tips and tricks, as well as their path from BU to their current positions.
