Career Development

At the Carroll School, we take career development personally: Our dedicated graduate career counselors offer tailored support, working with each student to establish individual career goals and providing assistance throughout the job search and salary negotiation processes.

We offer year-round programs and services, including focused advising, career strategy workshops, and employer recruiting events. Our students can also leverage a range of online resources, from industry webinars to guides on perfecting resumes and mastering interviewing skills. Even after they’ve graduated, students continue to enjoy career services for alumni.


 Our students have access to:

  • Experienced career advisors, who help students set career goals and develop and execute strategic job search plans
  • Job and internship opportunities via GradLeaders, Handshake, and other affiliated career sites
  • Workshops that focus on improving interview skills, developing effective approach and follow-up techniques, building networks, and other job search strategies
  • Information and network sessions, where employers speak with graduate students about their organizations
  • Interview preparation, including mock interviews and our Interview Guide
  • A weekly newsletter with postings and upcoming events

Information for International Students

Due to current economic conditions and present government regulations, finding permanent employment in the United States has in recent years become challenging for international students. In light of these circumstances, the Career Development Office recommends that international students conduct a global career search by looking for jobs in the U.S., as well as in countries where they have long-term work authorization.

The Career Development Office will provide support to international students by identifying job search sources, connecting with Boston College alumni whenever possible, and developing strategies for connecting with U.S. companies that may have offices in students’ home countries. In addition, our team will assist in the preparation of students’ marketing materials as well as in interview preparation.

International students can avail of all Career Development educational programs, both internal and those conducted by employers. Plus, students are provided access to a range of networking tools, job boards, and recruitment platforms targeted to international job seekers.
