Career Development

Back

The office of career services at Bryn Athyn College exists to help students and recent graduates identify, create and pursue meaningful careers that will draw upon their talents, interests, and skills, as well as hone their spiritual and moral lives. We assist our BAC students with portfolio preparation, internship placement services, career counseling, work-study advising, and service learning opportunities.

The college holds campus wide annual career focused workshops, career surveys, and offers a career mentoring service through the Alumni Association. In 2011, 100% of our graduating seniors received individual help with creating and updating a cover-letter and resume. Below is a sample of recent and future events:
