Turning Today's Students into Tomorrow's Professionals
Career Boot Camps
Career Intensive Boot Camps are Held Every Semester at the Greenly Center
In today's competitive job market, employers are looking for more than just good grades. They want a clean, concise resume, an applicant who shows up prepared and confident, someone who articulates why they are a good candidate for the organization, and an employee who performs in a professional manner.
The Career Intensive Boot Camp is a 2 1/2 day experience for seniors, juniors and recent graduates to learn how to leverage their skills and experiences to not only get a job, but to be successful in their transition from student to professional. Students will participate in 20+ unique sessions, including: Compensation Considerations, Debunking the "Career Path" Myth, The Shocking Truth of Getting Hired, Making Connections on LinkedIn, 3 Mock Interviews, Office Communications, and a Professional Etiquette Dinner!
In addition, all participants will receive a leather bound portfolio, one-on-one resume review, three different mock interviews, networking opportunities with BU alumni and organization partners, exclusive access to program materials before and after the event, and a certificate of completion.
Close to 200 students have participated in Boot Camps so far. Check out our video recap to see what program participants learned through their experience.
