Landing a new job as a BU alum

BU Connects

BU Connects is an online networking community exclusively for alumni, students, faculty, and staff. Within BU Connects you’ll find a job board filled with open positions and internships shared through Handshake or posted by alumni recruiting on behalf of their company or organization. Thousands of members have also indicated many different ways they can help including informational interviews or career conversations in the short-term or professional mentoring relationships in the long-term.


Handshake is BU’s official job board and career management platform for students and alumni. Complete your profile to see a curated collection of opportunities that are best suited to your interests and experience.

While this resource is open to all BU alumni and students, most listings are seeking candidates with fewer than 10 years’ experience.
