We all know that today's job market is more competitive than ever and it's obvious that employers are looking for more than just good grades. That's why you should attend a Career Intensive Bootcamp this spring if you are soon looking to apply to graduate school or enter the job force. The Spring Semester is unique in that there will be two Boot Camps rather than just one: Feb. 10-12 and March 3-5. Space is limited, so hurry to sign up at www.bloomu.edu/careers-bootcamp
"The boot camp helped me develop skills that I will take with me for the rest of my life. My goals now feel more aligned with my career plans," BU senior and fall boot camp attendee.
