Every semester, we host workshops on a wide range of topics for students and alumni at any and all stages of their career development. The sessions are generally held at our office.

Getting Started with the CCD

Students are encouraged to start utilizing the CCD early and often in order to maximize their time at Boston University. Workshop topics include funded internship programs and our unique Career Directions workshop, which is geared toward younger students.


The CCD works with students to understand themselves and what is most important to them so that they are better able to make good decisions. Interactive sessions include activities to assess skills and values, to choose a major, to brainstorm career goals, and more.

Branding & Marketing Yourself

The CCD helps students put their best self forward. Workshop topics include resumes, cover letters, networking, interviewing, and LinkedIn.

Next Steps for Campus to Career

From starting an internship or job search to landing a new position and beyond, the CCD has techniques and strategies to help students succeed. Workshop topics include the internship/job search, Handshake, salary negotiation, how to be successful in an internship or job, non-academic career options for PhD students, and more.

Graduate School

There are many factors to consider with a graduate school path as well as different types of materials to prepare. Workshop topics include planning to apply, personal statements, and more.
