Get Started

The Career Center is here to help you design a meaningful career that matches your interests, skills, and values. No matter where you are on your journey, the best way to get started is by accessing the three resources below. 

Complete Your Handshake Profile

Activate Your Account

Handshake is BC's official career platform where you will apply for jobs/internships, find events, and more. The key to success on Handshake is completing your profile—80% of students who complete their profile get messaged by an employer.

Join a Career Cluster

Find Your Cluster

The Career Center has seven career clusters to support the diverse interests of Boston College students. Each cluster will provide you with a community of like-minded peers as well as specialized coaching, services, and resources to support you on your journey.

Find Mentors on Eagle Exchange

Explore Alumni

Eagle Exchange is an interactive virtual platform that fosters connections between students and Boston College alumni. You can use Eagle Exchange to build your professional network, ask career-related questions, find alumni mentors, and more.

I would encourage BC students to reach out to the Career Center as early as freshman year for advice on majors and interests. The center is one of the most valuable resources on campus.
