Job Search Services

BVU's Office of Career and Personal Development is partnered with Beaver Tracks 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.

 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.     

Let’s Partner!

You’ve been where our students are. We invite you to stay involved with BVU to assist our students with career decisions and opportunities. Here are a few ways you can reach out to current students: 

Informational interviews:  We welcome your willingness to take a phone call, reply to an email message, or meet with a student who wants to learn more about what it takes to be successful.

Employment and internship opportunities: Tell us about job or internship opportunities in your organization, post a job or internship on Beaver Tracks, or contact us if you wish to recruit on campus. We’ll be happy to host you.
