Career Intensive Boot Camp


Bloomsburg University's Career Intensive Boot Camp is a 2.5-day experience for seniors, juniors and recent graduates to learn how to leverage their skills and experience to not only get a job, but to be successful in the transition from student to professional. Bloomsburg University holds boot camps during the fall and spring semesters each year at the Greenly Center in downtown Bloomsburg.

Students must pre-register and pay a nominal fee to participate. Financial assistance is considered upon request. Students must complete a BOLT course prior attending the boot camp.

During the boot camp, students participate in more than 20 unique sessions covering topics such as: Compensation Considerations, Debunking the “Career Path” Myth, The Shocking Truth of Getting Hired, Making Connections on LinkedIn, Mock Interviews and Instructor-led Etiquette Dinner.

Five things I learned at the Career Intensive Boot Camp

"A lot of times as students we feel that we have attended so many workshops, had our resume reviewed so many times and participated in so many networking events, that we are as prepared as we are ever going to be for post graduate life."

"I thought the same thing until I attended a Career Intensive Boot Camp. It consisted of two and a half days of team-building exercises, career-related workshops, networking luncheons, panel discussions and guest speakers. This event is held every fall and spring semester."

Career Intensive Boot Camp

Getting career ready

Team-building activities, career preparation exercises and alumni networking highlighted a busy three-day schedule for Bloomsburg University’s Career Intensive Boot Camp this fall.

A group of junior and senior students from many different majors joined together for a weekend packed full of professional development, coordinated by the Center for Professional Development and Career Experience at the Greenly Center.

“Honestly, I feel like the career intensive boot camp is preparing me for my major and just life in general,” said Keyion Holmes, a senior exercise science major. “One of the most difficult things I have done in a long time was being with other interviewees and only one interviewer. Just having that experience has been a great time.”
