Coping With Unemployment
You are not alone. Almost all of the alumni that we see here at the Career Center have either lost their jobs unexpectedly or are dissatisfied with their current career and looking to make a change.
We are not only a source of job search strategies and information - we are also here to pick you up when you are down, help you dust yourself off and point you in the right direction. As an alumnus or alumna of BC, you always have access to appointments with our career advisors and to the resources of our web site and Career Library.
