Yesterday, we hosted the Boise State Career Services Work U Mixer at our Ten Mile branch. Our intern, Kaitlyn, planned, developed, and executed the event for her co-hosts. This event allowed Work U mentors and mentees to connect with one another and practice their networking skills. Way to go, Kaitlyn, for putting together such a great event! 🎉 🙌

Last week, Erica Dhawan, author of Digital Body Language and co-author of the bestselling book Get Big Things Done: The Power of Connectional Intelligence, published an essay in Medium's work publication about the unique digital communication issues faced by the micro-generation between 1980 and 1985. It made international news and triggered over 15,000 retweets. Mostly due to the term "geriatric millennial." Some people had fun with the term and others were offended by it. Others suggested less quarrelsome monikers, such as Xennials, Elder Millennials, and the Oregon Trail Generation.

Whatever you call them, this micro-generation is important and unique because kids of the early ’80s spent their formative years on both sides of the analog and digital divide, and play a crucial role in helping bridge the communication gaps between the adapters and natives.

In the webinar Digital Body Language: Collaborate Faster and Further on June 3, Erica Dhawan combines cutting-edge research with engaging storytelling to break down why this generation is crucial. Additionally, Dhawan will decode the new signals and cues that have replaced traditional body language across genders, generations, and cultures. You will learn your collaboration style and the digital body language signals you may be broadcasting, how to develop a collaboration strategy that fosters valuable relationships, and how to end cultures of useless meetings, missed deadlines, and digital misunderstandings.

Friends, we're a little soggy over here at Boulder Hall. Due to the storm on Tuesday night which caused flooding in our building, Career Services will be relocating for a bit.

We are still here for you and looking forward to serving you online until we can resume in-person services in a new location, hopefully next week. Our front desk in Boulder Hall will remain open so you can stop by with questions. Learn about our services and make an online appointment at

If you have an upcoming appointment with us, look for an email with instructions for how you will meet with your career counselor online at your scheduled appointment time. (If you have an in-person appointment with Leandra in the College of Engineering, your appointment will still be in-person.)

Stay tuned for updates about our new temporary location!

If you're looking for an on-campus or off-campus job, make sure the On-Campus and Part-Time job fair is on your to-do list for the first week of classes. On Wednesday from 11-2, 55 employers will be on the Quad ready to talk to you about their opportunities.

Here are some tips:
🔶 Find out which employers are coming here: If you don't have a lot of time to spend, this will help you focus your time on the employers you're most interested in.
🔷 Also keep an open mind and explore other opportunities. You never know what might spark your interest once you hear what the employer has to say.
🔶 There's no dress code and resumes aren't required, so stop and talk even if you (oops) totally forget the fair was even happening until stumbling upon it in the Quad.
🔷 A great way to impress the employers at a part-time fair is to ask lots of questions. Don't forget to also smile lots and shake hands!

Need more tips? You can find Career Services at the check-in table for some quick coaching or encouragement!

Did we mention there are lots of on-campus jobs posted on Handshake that you can apply for today?

If you don't have that job offer in hand before classes start, we've got you covered with the On-Campus and Part-Time Job Fair, happening the first Wednesday of classes, from 11-2 on the Quad. There you'll be able to directly connect with both on-campus employers who are still hiring and off-campus employers looking for students for part-time positions.

Ah, Work-Study, one of the most confusing terms on campus. What the heck is it, and do you really get paid to study? (Spoiler: no.) But still! You've heard it's a good thing so how do you get it?

Buckle up while we try our best to explain.

🔶 Work-Study is a financial aid award, but it's not like a scholarship where you just get the money. Instead, you have to get an on-campus or other Work-Study eligible job, where you can then earn up to the amount of your award by working that job.
🔷 If you have an award, you can use it in ANY on-campus student job, but you do have a competitive advantage when applying to jobs say a Work-Study award is required or preferred. (If you don't have an award, you can apply for all on-campus jobs except any that say Work-Study is required.)

🔶 The criteria change each year. When you complete the FAFSA, if you check the box that says you're interested in Work-Study, you may be awarded it if you qualify.
🔷 This part is important - If you weren't offered an award this year, but you still owe money towards your tuition and fees after the other aid you've received, you MAY STILL BE ELIGIBLE.
🔶 To check your eligibility, fill out Financial Aid's Work-Study Waitlist Form.

Get more info about Work-Study and the link to the Waitlist Form here:

Another day, another sampling of the diverse on-campus student jobs currently available in Handshake for the upcoming school year.

But how do you compete for that job you have your eye on? Here are a couple tips:
🔷 Target your application materials - make sure they address all the qualifications in the job description
🔶 Get help! Don't wing it - make a Career Services appointment now (online/remote appointments available) for personalized help with your application materials or getting ready for interviews
🔷 Introduce yourself. Don't be afraid to contact or stop by the department you want to work for and let them know you're interested. Very few students take this extra step to express their interest so it can really set you apart.

Make an appointment or log into your Handshake account from


It's time to start looking for your on-campus job! Boise State departments have begun posting their jobs to Handshake, and there are over 50 currently posted with more on the way. Here are just a few examples of jobs you can apply for today.

An on-campus job is more than a paycheck - it's a career development experience. With so many different types of jobs available, look for one that will give you experience in a career field of interest, or fill in gaps in your resume with new professional skills.

Don't forget to check Handshake at least once a week so you don't miss out on new opportunities that get posted!

Meet Jay, a senior who did his Work U internship at Mid-Century Homes last semester.

Jay highly recommends Work U and felt that he got great experience in his position that will benefit him in the future.

Applications close THIS THURSDAY (as in 2 days from now 😱)! Don't panic, but... ok, you can panic a little if you want. After all, you'll probably be sad if that opportunity you wanted gets taken by somebody else because you missed the deadline. Bonus tip: Waiting until 15 minutes before midnight to do your application would be a bad idea because when we select students we'll be looking for how much thought you put into your answers to the questions.

Go to to see the 60+ opportunities for fall, pick out your top 3, and get your application started.


Curious about Work U? Meet Colton, a senior in business administration who is doing a Work U internship this semester with the Idaho Veterans Chamber of Commerce.

Colton has loved his time in the Work U program and would "absolutley recommend it to fellow Broncos."

This one is for our alumni and employer partners. We're hoping you'll consider contributing to Career Services' Student Employability Fund on Bronco Giving Day, and here's why.

The Student Employability Fund exists to help give students access to the professional experiences they need to be employable and prepared to contribute to your organization. Internships are critical for career preparation, yet many of our students cannot afford to participate in unpaid internships, which are still very common in many fields.

The Student Employability Fund is used to provide scholarships to students with financial need who are participating in unpaid internship experiences. Learn more and contribute at:

Tip #4 to prepare you for the career fair is here!

Coming up with some questions beforehand will really help you stand out to the employers. Make most of your questions specific to each of the employers you want to talk to - the best questions will reference something you found out when you researched the company.

You don't need to memorize your questions, you can always bring them with you! Preparing questions will make your conversation easier and help you make meaningful connections.

Opportunity alert: Meet Tina, a Schematic Analyst for SAS Retail Services. SAS Retail Services will be at the Career Fair recruiting for this position, which plays a pivotal role in the design and profitability of Albertsons grocery stores by creating planograms and schematics. These are like blueprints for visual merchandising and product displays.

Tina spends most days addressing store requests for schematics, which involves researching existing schematics, building new ones, and making decisions about adding and removing products to fit the size of the store. She also works with data and creates reports to help the team determine what products are doing well and what should be removed or relocated to improve sales.

Tina says she likes that the job is both challenging and comfortable. There is always something new to be learned, but once you get a basic understanding, some of the day to day work is like a walk in the park. She thinks SAS Retail Services is great because of how they work as a team. If one person falls behind there’s always others there to help get them where they need to be. It is a professional and friendly environment that encourages asking questions or coming up with new, more efficient ways to get work done.

Tip #2 is here! Listen to your fellow Bronco talk about her experience with resumes at the Career Fair.

Many employers like to have a resume in hand while they're talking to you, so bring copies of a resume targeted to the type of work you want to do. If you're planning to apply to the specific jobs that the employers are recruiting for, create a unique resume targeted to the requirements of each position.

If you're unsure how to do this or want a little help, Career Services has got you covered! Visit the Career Services website to check out the resume resources available. Link in bio!!


The spring Career Fair is almost here and preperation is key! We've got some tips to help you feel more prepared and confident. Here's tip #1!

Employers find it more effective to hire people they've met, so they come to the Boise State Career Fair to meet you. It's important to have a couple main talking points thought out ahead of time. Don't try to script it, but work on knowing the most important parts you want the employer to know, like relevant skills, experiences like internships, Work U, class projects, and anything that could make you stand out.

Today’s FAQ Friday is all about your Work U application. The process may seem intimidating, but we’re here to help! Here are the top, most important tips straight from the folks who review the applications.

1.) First, let's get the basic info out of the way. Apply using the online application found at
2.) Don’t be afraid to apply no matter what your experience level is. Work U exists to help you gain professional experience, so lack of formal professional experience actually makes your application stronger.
3.) On the application, you can select up to 3 opportunities you're interested in. To increase your odds of being placed, select 3.
4.) Fully answer each question on the application - about a paragraph per question. Double check for errors. They're looking for candidates with a strong sense of purpose - make sure you clearly explain how this will benefit you and your career goals.
5.) Make sure you have a good resume. This is a perfect opportunity to check out the resume resources that are on our website! Once you've been placed, your resume will go to the employer to approve your placement.

There are still several opportunities left for spring - get your application in by Monday, November 21 to get your Work U experience!

Round 2 of Work U applications for spring is open now through November 21. But... what even is Work U?

Work U is an internship program run by Boise State that’s a bit different from a traditional internship.

Instead of looking for your own internship, you can apply to Work U, tell us which of the opportunities you’re interested in, and we’ll place you somewhere that best fits your career goals. You can be considered for every opportunity no matter what your major is. You'll also have a weekly class with a career advisor who's there to help you get the most out of your internship.

There are still 23 opportunities left for spring. See them here:

Timeline photos 10/24/2022

Need professional experience? Boise State's Work U program is a great way to get started. Your Work U internship doesn't have to be related to your major, and you don't need prior experience. For spring 2023, we have over 50 opportunities in areas including human resources, communication, marketing, philanthropy, finance, procurement, human services, sustainability, and project management.

Unlike a traditional internship where you apply directly to the employer, with Work U you apply to the program and tell us which opportunities you're interested in, and we'll place you into an opportunity that fits your goals. You'll also have a professional mentor, and weekly support from a career advisor to help you make the most of your experience.

See all the spring opportunities at:

To increase your chances of getting placed into your top choice opportunity, apply by this Wednesday, Oct. 26. While you can still apply after that, we'll start placing people then, so your top choices might get filled.

Walking into a career fair can be super intimidating, especially if it's your first one. We're here to calm your nerves by letting you know what to expect tomorrow.

Checking in:
- You can check in at either ballroom - Jordan or Simplot. BUT, we are not using the main entrance to the Simplot. You'll find the check-in table at the side entrance, the one that is straight down the hall from the Jordan.
- Bring your student ID card to swipe (otherwise you'll have to type your number).
- A name tag will be printed for you. Wear it! This is really helpful to the employers.

Getting around:
- After you check in, you'll be offered a career fair map. Next to the name of each employer or school, you'll see a number which corresponds to a table on the map.
- Employers and schools whose name starts with A-M will be in the Jordan. N-Z will be in the Simplot.
- Still lost? Just ask someone at the check-in table or the Career Services table for help finding the organization you're looking for.

Approaching a table:
- Don't be afraid to walk right up and introduce yourself. They're here because they want to meet you! Don't forget to smile, which will make you seem enthusiastic and interested in talking to them.
- You'll feel more confident if you think through ahead of time what you want the employer to know about you. Which pieces of info are most important/relevant to share when you first introduce yourself?

What to wear:
- There's no dress code or requirements to get into the career fair. But if you want to impress the employers (which is definitely important if you're searching for a job or internship!), it's a good idea to dress like you would for an interview.
