Networking, applications, interviews, résumés—searching for a job can be intimidating and overwhelming. Thankfully, all JBU students have the Career Development Center available to help them reach their career goals. Here are a few ways the CDC can help:

  • The CDC has several annual events that focus on connecting student professionals with potential employers, including the Career Fair, Speed Interviewing and Networking Event, and Employer Branding Days and Workshops. There is also a JBU alumni group and a JBU Career and Networking group on LinkedIn where students and employers can connect.
  • Job-searching. In addition to its connections with employers searching for JBU graduates, the CDC offers a free tool called Career Link, which will help you search through relevant job postings. Here, you can upload your résumé and other documents for review by the CDC staff, and then use them to apply for jobs directly on the site.
  • Résumés. You can submit your résumé for first line review for basic formatting, grammar and syntax feedback. For further résumé polishing and career coaching, you can meet with a career counselor to talk through résumé strategies for targeting certain roles or positions.
  • The CDC offers a free resource called BIG Interview, a mock interviewing resource that allows student professionals to learn and practice their interviewing skills.
  • Graduate school. If you’re thinking about getting your master’s degree, the CDC can review your grad school options, help you prepare for entrance exams, and review your application materials. Keep in mind that JBU offers quality, Christ-centered graduate programs in Business, Counseling, Education, and Visual Arts.

The CDC’s services also include career counseling and coaching, professional development planning, and personality and career assessments. According to CDC Director Raynisha Robinson, “having access to the resources offered in the CDC allows for you to be intentional and ahead of the competition as you prepare to navigate a new job or promotional opportunity.”
