Employment & Internships
Practical experience in your major can lead to a job!
Our Career Services department provides advising, as well as career resources. We make available to you different ways to search for jobs, internships, and other employment opportunities. We have made arrangements with some of the top employment/internship driven organizations to provide BAU students with high quality resources when it comes to seek internships or employment opportunities. Also, there are partners organizations in our network that provide support to prepare students for job interviews, how to write eye-catching resumes, how to effectively search for online jobs, etc.
In addition, and whenever possible, the Career Services department also sponsors workshops, in which the goal is to place students in internships and help them find rewarding employment. We 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.
