The Career Services office annually invites recruiters to come to campus and talk with Boston College Graduate School of Social Work students and alumni about the employment opportunities at their agencies. Every year, students and alumni impress the agencies with their excellent questions and professional presentation. Comments from recruiters who have attended the recruitment fair:
"We just want to say thank you for inviting us to participate in the BC Social Work job fair yesterday. It was by far the best recruitment fair we have participated in, both from an organizational viewpoint as well as results. The students that we talked with were without exception well prepared to talk with us, having visited our website beforehand, and asked excellent questions that indicated that they were thinking long term career, not just getting the first job. Boston College should be commended for the preparation of these future Social Workers."
—Margaret and Ami Swanson from Social Work P.R.N. agency
"Your students are very well prepared. Each student that approached us had been to our website, asked great questions, and in general, were very impressive. In today's tough economy, you need to give your students every advantage you can; GSSW has certainly found a great method to do that. I hope that we will be offering several of your students positions after they graduate."
—Jordan A. Oshlag, MSW, LICSW, Vice President of Operations, Community Healthlink
"This has been a great event for us for over six years. We have hired about seven or eight social workers from your fair over the years and at least four or five have become permanent Cambridge Health Alliance employees."
—Richard Baldwin, Cambridge Health Alliance
