The process of identifying and applying for a job can be complex.  Further complicating the process, it seems like everyone you know has a different opinion on what your resume and cover letter should look like, how you should network with potential employers, and how to properly follow-up on a job that you’ve applied for.We’ve asked BU alumni who work as professional recruiters to share their opinion on the current state of finding, applying, and interviewing for a job, and to answer the questions you might have about the process.  These great alumni represent many years of experience in hiring for companies, representing a broad variety of organizations and industries.As part of this great evening, we’ll also provide a great atmosphere for to network with fellow BU alumni and share “stories from the battlefield”.
