Spring 2021 Changes at the CCD

Welcome to 2021, Terriers! As we begin a new year, the CCD remains committed to bringing you access to high-quality career resources and tools.

In-Person & Remote Appointments

The CCD has adapted many of its in-person services and resources to be available for students wherever they are. But did you know that in-person appointments are still available on a limited basis?

When you are seeking a one-on-one appointment with a career educator, you can decide the format of your session that will work the best for you. If you want a virtual appointment, you can make the appointment in Handshake as you would schedule any other career event. If, however, you’d prefer to talk face to face, you can do so. Simply email your request to future@bu.edu and we’ll work with you to find a date and time that will work for you.

If you schedule an in-person career appointment, please follow all BU safety guidelines. Your appointment will be conducted in accordance with current social distancing practices. If you would like more information on BU’s current safety rules, please visit https://www.bu.edu/back2bu/.

Virtual Career Fairs

This semester, the University-Wide Career Fair will take place in Handshake. Handshake virtual career fairs give you the same access to exciting organizations seeking Terriers for internship and job opportunities as you would find at an in-person fair, from the comfort of your home!

See Handshake’s Guide to Virtual Career Fairs

Handshake virtual career fairs give students a more curated, efficient experience without having to wait in line. Before the fair, you will receive session recommendations via email and be able to easily review the list of attendees based on your interests. Attending organizations may host group interviews or 1:1 sessions, which you can participate in via video chat directly from the Handshake website or app.

To prepare for the fair, RSVP in Handshake. Make sure your Handshake profile is up to date to receive the best possible recommendations. Other than that, prepare as you would for any other career event; revise your resume in VMock and make sure you dress for success!

We encourage you to explore our Online Career Resource Roundup to see even more ways the CCD can help you in Spring 2021. Best of luck with your new semester!
