The Blank School engages Babson community members and leads research to create entrepreneurial leaders.
Undergraduate Career Advising and Support from the First Day
We have your back from day one. As soon as you arrive at Babson, you have access to peer undergraduate career advising, career workshops, and resources from our Undergraduate Center for Career Development (CCD). These tools are catered to our students and their unique interests.
When you partner with us, you are already ahead of the curve.
When I got to Babson, I didn’t have a specific desired career path but had the general goal of making lifelong friends and securing a strong start to my career. Throughout my four years, I was able to hone in on my professional goals, through internships and networking events through Babson CCD.”
Additionally, our virtual tools are available for students 24/7 and help connect students to those aforementioned resources, on-campus events, skill-building opportunities, undergraduate career advising, resume reviews, and more.
Take Us With You at Every Step
Most of our events and tools are open to all of our students, though some are more useful to upperclassmen. Regardless, you can start early. Here is just an example of how we support our students from orientation to graduation.
Your First Year with CCD
We want you to feel the love the minute you step on campus. As you adjust to college, you can join us for one of our signature first-year events and even start meeting with Peer Career Ambassadors, who function similarly to an undergraduate career advisor.
Peer Career Ambassadors
Peer Career Ambassadors (PCAs) are Babson students trained to assist their peers with their career-related needs. As a first-year student, you have the opportunity to meet with PCAs who have been in your shoes and can review your resume and direct you to the right resources to begin your career exploration.
First-Year Fridays is a weekly workshop aimed to bridge the gap between the high school senior and the professional first-year student. Each Friday, PCAs present different topics that address this gap, as well as tips for skill building.
Getting the Professional Hang of It
With a few semesters under your belt, you will have more of an idea of what career you want to pursue. It’s never too early to start exploring potential careers and internships. Even if you have already decided or are seeking guidance, we are here to show you all the options available to you.
24/7 Virtual Tools to Explore
You will have 24/7 access to Canvas, VMock, and Big Interview, among others, to help with your career search strategies, resume guidance, industry expertise, interview prep, and more.
Career Workshop Opportunities and Industry Spotlights
Put these on your calendar when you’re ready to start mapping out your professional future. Leveraging our expansive employer partnerships and incredible alumni network, we offer workshops, career sessions, and spotlight programs tailored toward specific industries and career development milestones.
Finding Professional Opportunities
Internships and externships are not required of our students, but almost all of them do at least one while at Babson. We offer various levels of support during this part of your career exploration.
1-1 Undergraduate Career Advising with CCD Staff
CCD staff has networks and expertise across industries. You can come to us for help with an internship strategy or job-search plan, how to connect with alumni and employers, your resume and cover letters, interview and grad school application prep, or even a specific opportunity.
