Dear Students,

I hope this message finds you well during this unprecedented time. As BC Law has moved to an online learning environment, the Career Services Office (CSO) has as well. The CSO Team is working hard to make this transition as seamless as possible.=

For the remainder of the spring semester, we will provide all services remotely via phone, email or through various virtual platforms. CSO Staff will be available for business Monday through Friday from 9:00am - 5:00pm. This situation necessitates that we alter some of our operations and procedures, as outlined below. We are here to support you as we all navigate this unprecedented situation and we ask for your patience with us as we make this transition. As always, please do not hesitate to reach out to us by phone at (617) 552-4345 or e-mail at law.career@bc.edu with any questions or concerns.

Communications
The CSO weekly newsletter continues to be the primary method for us to distribute information about upcoming CSO programs, job opportunities, and other important news and updates. We strongly recommend that you read the newsletter every Monday. 

Advising Appointments/Mock Interviews
All advisors are available for telephone appointments. Once you schedule your appointment through SAGE, you will receive a confirmation email with a phone number for you to call at the time of your appointment. Please keep in mind that all appointments are scheduled in Eastern Daylight Time. We are happy to conduct mock interviews via Zoom or Google Hangout. 

Drop-Ins
Students with time-sensitive questions should email law.career@bc.edu with the nature of your question and your contact information, and a CSO advisor will reach out to you as soon as possible.

Resume/Cover Letter Reviews
Students wishing to have their resume or cover letter reviewed by a CSO advisor can schedule an appointment through SAGE.

Job Postings
We will continue to post summer and post graduate positions in a timely manner and seek out new opportunities to post in SAGE from a variety of sources.

CSO Google Drive
There is a wealth of information available in the CSO Google Drive including a new resource, FAQs: COVID-19 Impact on Career Related Matters that gives some helpful career-related updates and advice involving the current COVID-19 situation. We will update this document frequently. See this screenshot for how to save the CSO Student Google Drive for convenient future access.

Programs
We intend to offer as many of our spring semester programs as possible virtually through Zoom. When that is not feasible, a specific program may be cancelled or information from the program will be made available in a different format. Please see the weekly newsletter for information about specific programs.

I understand that this uncertain time creates much anxiety generally, and that your job search and job security is on your mind. This is indeed on our minds too, and we will continue to work together to help you find your summer or post graduate job, monitor the market, conduct extensive employer outreach to identify new opportunities and to connect you with helpful alumni and other practitioners.

Please take care of yourself and each other and don’t hesitate to reach out to any member of the CSO with your questions or concerns. More to come in the days ahead, but in the meantime, please know that we are thinking about you and look forward to continuing to work with you. 

Sincerely, 

Jennifer Perrigo
