Career Resources for Graduate Students

Congratulations on beginning your graduate studies at Boston University! Whether you’re continuing on from a BU undergraduate program or joining us for the first time, we are excited to welcome you to our community and introduce you to the Center for Career Development (CCD).

The breadth of graduate programs at BU include terminal professional programs, academic disciplines to put you on the path of academia, and more.

Whatever your aspirations for your graduate studies at BU, career development is an important part of achieving your goals.

Here at the CCD, If you’re pursuing graduate studies to continue to explore an academic passion, we’ve got your back. You are best served with career exploration, which may include self- assessment, mastering career search concepts, or developing your mosaic – the unique combination of academic excellence, professional and volunteer experience, and other attainments that make you you.

For those with a clearer career trajectory, the CCD is your one-stop shop for career management. You know where you’re going but may seek out improvements to your resume and/or CV, interviewing skills, or networking and salary negotiation.

And of course, it’s important to remember that even if you did not explore much career development as an undergrad (maybe because you knew grad school was part of your future), it is never too late to start. The CCD helps grad students just like you attain their first internship experience, practice for job interviews, and more every day.

To get started, we invite you to explore all the CCD has to offer. Check out our blog post that runs down career resources and services available to you as a member of the BU community. From attending workshops, to events that bring employers right to you on campus, to individual career counseling appointments, we have the tools you need to get started.
