An Inside Look at the Career Development Office

As the job market continues to show improvement, more employers are seeking MBA candidates. The Carroll School of Management is currently trending ahead of last year in both the percentage of students who have received internship and job offers, and those who have accepted. If Boston College is a forerunner on your list of b-schools, here’s how you can expect Boston College’s Career Development office to help you on your path to success.

The Career Development office will:

  • Advocate on your behalf. The staff makes it their responsibility to learn about different jobs in the market and to understand company culture at each of our partnering employers. With their fingers on the pulse of the job market, they are able to educate students like you about where you’ll find the best fit—and more importantly, the most success. (An internship or job search that’s tailored to you and your career objectives? That’s just one of the ways our students become profession-ready.)
  • Review your resume materials. In order to help you find a position that builds on your interests, advances your skills and knowledge, and ultimately, accelerates or transitions your career, the Career Development office will work with you to review your resume, make improvements, and send it to potential employers as early as September of your first year. With the help of a team that knows the positions and knows the market, the transition from an admissions-focused resume to one that is internship or employment-focused will be seamless.
  • Evaluate your offers. When it comes time to weigh your job offers, Career Development will help you envision the possibilities that lie ahead, with special attention given to your potential fit and growth in that professional environment—not just on the predicted earnings.
  • Offer continued support. The relationships that the Career Development staff forms with our students ensure that their backing and encouragement continues even after you leave BC. Your collaboration with them won’t end once you accept a job offer either. In fact, you can rely on them to stay in contact so that, should you pursue new employment opportunities as an alum, they can be of assistance in the process once again.
