Career Advising

Career Advising at Berklee

The Berklee Career Center is here to help you. Maybe you're not yet sure what you want to do, or maybe you know exactly what you want to do but aren't certain how to get there. Maybe you're looking to build on your existing experience, or maybe you want to get your foot in the door for that first post-college job.

Wherever you are in planning your career, the Berklee Career Center will meet you there. We welcome you to take advantage of more personalized assistance by making an appointment with us.

Connect with the Berklee Career Center

As a Berklee undergraduate or graduate student, there are several ways to make the most of what the Berklee Career Center has to offer:

  • Schedule an appointment. Log in to the Berklee Career Manager, and click “Request an Advising Appointment.”
  • Stop by during walk-in hours. No appointment? No problem. If you’re located on the Boston campus, we’re available from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m., Monday–Friday.
  • Attend a resumé/cover letter tune-up session. Every Tuesday at 2:00 p.m., let us help you make your resumé and cover letter shine. Bring your current draft for feedback, or just come learn more about what employers look for and what to include before you begin.
  • Call us. Not in the area? You can schedule an appointment with us (see above) to take place over the phone or via Skype.
