Most career opportunities are found through networking.  Additionally, when we surveyed our seniors who found jobs through OCR, 86% of them indicated that networking with alumni at those organizations was crucial to their success in securing the interviews and preparing well enough to succeed.  There are thousands of BC alumni out there who would love to help you by providing information, contacts, introductions, interview and resume advice, and mentor you with your job search.  All you have to do is ask.   

LinkedIn, a social networking sight for professionals. You need to have a strong profile on Linked In.  See this link for tips.  This is also  the most effective and updated way to find alumni.  See this handout for instructions on finding BC Alumni.  Make sure to join the New BC Career Community Group through LinkedIn.  All of the alumni in this group are in here to help.    Boston College Career Community
