Career Directions: Starting Your Journey

The experiences you have at BU—from academic and social activities to internships and student leadership—all help to shape who you are and who you are to become personally and professionally. Your first year at BU can be both an exciting and challenging time. You’re new to BU, you’re making friends, figuring out your major, and most likely living away from home for the first time.

“Career Directions is an opportunity to understand yourself and your strengths better. It helps guide you in a direction towards choosing a major and a path that is right for you.” – Rashid Nelson (SMG’15), CCD-ERC Student Ambassador

As a first-year student, there are several things that you can do now that will get you on the right track to figuring out your career path as you make your way from your first day through your senior year and beyond.

Get started on the right foot with Career Directions: Starting Your Journey, designed specifically for first-year students. Through this interactive, one-hour program you will learn how to utilize the Career Development Cycle to maximize your time at BU and to advance from one step to another, helping you to create a plan of action toward choosing a major, creating a resume, finding your first internship, graduating, and eventually starting a career that you love

During this one-hour session, you and 8-10 other first-year students will discuss what you can do now (and why it matters) to get on the right track to figuring out how to make the most of BU.
