Alumni Career Services

The Center for Career Development at Bloomfield College recognizes that career development is a lifelong process.  Alumni are welcome to utilize our programs and services.  These include:

  • Individual appointments with an experienced career counselor
  • E-counseling for those who cannot visit the office
  • Resume and cover letter critiques
  • The opportunity to complete self-assessment inventories

Alumni are welcomed to attend our workshops, career fairs, and employer panels.  Our services are invaluable to alumni who are in career transition due to personal choice or downsizing.

In addition, we need our Alumni to share their expertise with our undergraduates.  The students are energized by meeting Bloomfield alumni at our Meet the Professionals panels, which are held twice a year.

Individual Counseling Sessions

Please call for an appointment in advance:  973-748-9000, ext. 1250.
