“My experiences with them have been out of this world. They are curious, responsive, ask great questions, and want to connect with team members, and that is fantastic. Some of the most thoughtful follow-up messages I’ve ever received have come from B.U. students, and we take notice.”

Elizabeth Brinley from Enterprise Holdings speaks to a group of BU students at the Career Intensive Boot Camp

“B.U. students are very well prepared, and we see them continually be top performers. When we talk with them at campus events, they are ambitious. They have lofty goals, and that matches our ‘promote from within’ mentality.”

“The idea that you need to have studied at a big-name school is evolving toward investing in partnerships that give us access to great students everywhere. There is a lot of power in getting to know people. About a third of our hires come from referrals.”

“You see a lot of grassroots grit and determination and will power coming out of BU students. Many are first-gen like I was, and I wanted to prove to myself and my family that I wasn’t going to fail. It’s something Intangible that you can’t teach people – the 'dig your heels in’ and succeeded no matter what."

"Anytime we come to campus to share our brand and recruit, faculty and staff are always supportive and make sure the students coming to the expos are well prepared. The students ask questions, are dressed professionally, and present themselves well. [BU students] always stand out in my mind."
