extra parent update

Dear Boston College Parents:

I am writing to update you on three upcoming career programs Boston College is offering students over the winter break during the month of January: job shadowing opportunities, a conference specifically designed for sophomores pursuing degrees in the liberal arts, and career and internship fairs across the U.S.

We hope you will talk about these possibilities with your student and encourage his or her participation. Our Career Center team looks forward to working with your son or daughter to explore career opportunities during the break and throughout the year.

With all good wishes to you and your family for a lovely Thanksgiving,

Barbara Jones, Ph.D.

Vice President for Student Affairs

BC Career Center’s 2017 winter break offerings—for your interest and your student’s participation:

The Boston College Winter Job Shadow Program
Your son or daughter can take advantage of an opportunity to experience a "day in the life" of a working professional in a field or industry of interest to them. Students can select from up to 800 positions offered by more than 200 host firms in 29 states and 40 industries.

Registration is open through November 13. Please visit the Career Center website for more information.

Endeavor: The Liberal Arts Advantage for Sophomores*
Is your sophomore interested in learning how his or her liberal arts education can translate into different career fields—and connect to the future? Endeavor, a three-day career exploration conference, January 11–13, 2017, brings second-year students together with alumni, faculty, and friends to explore, reflect, and learn how to realize their career interests and goals.

*Please note that students who participate in Endeavor will have to return to campus prior to the start of January classes. This program is free of charge for student participants. Please visit the Endeavor website for more information, to view the schedule, and to register.

BC Winter Break Regional Career & Internship Fairs
In partnership with the Career and Internship Connections Consortium, Boston College is among 17 colleges and universities that sponsor career fairs during the winter break. Any Boston College undergraduate student can take advantage of these opportunities to network and interview for internships and full-time jobs with hundreds of employers in Boston, New York City, and Washington, D.C.

For more information on these and other career resources and services, visit the Career Center website.
