Career Tools & Other Resources
One of BAU’s top priorities is to ensure that all students leverage the education they receive at our institution so that they can obtain gainful employment and advance their professional careers. To this end, BAU invests significant energy into its Career Services department. Every semester, Career Services sponsors a regular series of workshops, in which they work to place students in internships and help them find rewarding employment. They bring potential employers onto campus, host job fairs, and offer sponsored student trips to employers and organizations. BAU’s Career Services department is constantly expanding a network of partners to assist students in their transition to the workforce. The department also sends regularly updated job opportunities directly to students via email.
