The Center for Career Development offers workshops on such topics as resume writing, interviewing, and job hunting. The University has its own Boston University Career Counselor who provides career counseling for current students and alumni.

Boston University provides individual career counseling services.

One-hour appointments are free for BUSSW students and alumni who have graduated within a year. Fifteen minute, first-come first-serve walk-in services are also free: Mon., Wed., and Thurs., noon–4 p.m., and Tues. and Fri., 11 a.m.–3 p.m. Alumni who graduated more than a year previously pay $25 per hour for career counseling.

The Career Services office has four trained career counselors on staff. Terry Brown works particularly with social workers and social work students. She can help you with career direction, job search and resume advice, interview practice, and/or other career-related questions or concerns you might have. Please feel welcome to make use of this valuable resource.
