Berklee's Career Development Center helps you to bring your career goals into focus. You can meet with a counselor to identify and assess your skills, locate information about specific music careers, expand and develop your career options, prepare a resume and professional cover letter(s), learn or refine interview and audition skills, and plan career development.
The CDC also programs group sessions on topics such as obtaining a recording contract, self promotion and publicity, personal managers and agents, financial planning for musicians and career options related to the various majors at Berklee.
Browse through the more than 200 videos and 185 audio tapes that address a wide range of music career and personal topics. Pick up one of the over 180 free handouts the CDC has acquired from various trade magazines related to music industry subjects, resume writing, copyright issues and more.
Or check out the career and performance opportunities we receive from businesses, bands and individuals on a daily basis--in a typical semester, we post over 1,000 listings. We make this information available to you through our Jobs/Gigs board and files located in the CDC office and it is also sent via email to Berklee alumni. Jobs are grouped into categories such as internships (general), internships for credit, dated gigs, seasonal gigs, ongoing gigs, teaching (certified) and so on.
The CDC also provides Macintosh computers for word processing letters, designing resumes and flyers, and updating personal databases; a copying machine; reference books and materials; and assistance with basic word processing and desktop publishing.
