“I work at Boston Children’s Hospital as a Patient Experience Representative. This opportunity is the perfect culmination of all that I’ve learned both in the classroom and through internship experiences. I could not be more thrilled to share my skill sets in this multidisciplinary field. Thank you to all the amazing professors, mentors, career coaches, and my incredible support system who’ve helped me get to where I am today!”

A liberal arts education provides an essential foundation for any career you pursue. Critical thinking, writing, the ability to collaborate, and speaking before an audience are all skills that employers highly value. At the same time, we believe that it’s essential for students to have access to quality, real-world experiences during their time at school through internships, on-campus student employment, and volunteering. At the Boucher Career Education Center we are here to guide your path, providing support to students choosing a major, information on building your resumé and networking, career advice, and much more.

Diversity, equity and inclusion are core values and a priority in all our work. Whether you are a prospective student or family, current student, alumna/us or employer, our career staff is here to help.
