Business Career Services

The Business Career Services Center provides a variety of resources including recruiting (on-campus interviews) for full-time and internship positions facilitated through KU Career Connections/Symplicity, an online job and internship database; individual career advising; and a variety of workshops and events—to name a few.

Other BCSC services include

  • Individual career advising with trained counselors.
  • Business career fair.
  • Résumé review.
  • Mock interviews and interview preparation assistance.
  • Workshops on various career-related topics.
  • Online resource libraries.
  • Salary information.

The faculty and career services staff are committed to providing a strong student-oriented program to help students develop career objectives and target job opportunities. The BCSC cannot guarantee jobs, but it will make every effort to bring together the job-seeking candidate and potential employers in accordance with their needs, abilities, and interests. Business graduates have been successful in finding employment in their areas of interest. Positions have been available nationwide, regardless of academic area or business degree.

Students are encouraged to register with the BCSC as early as possible. As the job market tightens, employer recruiting increases. An early start can mean wider access to potential employment opportunities. Registrants’ résumés are placed on a web-based computer database, allowing access by the BCSC, employers, and students. This allows the BCSC to perform résumé referrals quickly and companies to conduct their own résumé searches. Students can update their résumés at any time from any Internet-linked computer.

Statistics on graduates are collected each semester. Information on the number of degrees granted, percentage of graduates employed, and average starting salaries can be found on the School of Business website.
