Job Search Services

BVU Career Services is partnered with College Central Network to provide comprehensive web-based job search services to our students and alumni. Employers who want to hire BVU alumni or students can post jobs, review your resume, and connect with you for full-time and part-time jobs, internships, or summer jobs. Register here to get started.

 Linkedin is one of the most popular professional networking sites on the internet. If you already have a Linkedin account, be sure to join the Linkedin BVU Alumni group. You can learn about job opportunities from other alums and post positions in your own organization, create discussions, and learn about networking events. If you don’t have a Linkedin account, be sure to add this resource to your ongoing career development strategy.
