Partners in the Community
BSC Career Services maintains ongoing positive relationships with prominent members of the community. These important partners are alumni, business representatives, and community leaders. They support Birmingham-Southern College in many ways. They serve on advisory boards. They attend career fairs and participate in on-campus recruiting. They offer internships, mentorships, and job shadowing opportunities. They hire our students.
These community leaders serve as valuable resources to serious-minded student candidates seeking advice, information, referrals, and employment. Students who are exploring career options and seeking networking opportunities might begin by establishing rapport with some of our partners in the community.
If you are seeking opportunities in the community, and are in the process of conducting some good networking or prospecting activity, you can utilize these resources. These sites, organizations, and lists offer helpful information and practical tools to candidates seeking membership in professional associations, volunteer community service opportunities, internship and mentorship opportunities, teaching opportunities with public schools, employment with local companies, employment with non-profit organizations, employment with government agencies, and other professional activity.
