Career Support Services

The Career Support Services Office provides professional career support, services and resources to Boston Conservatory students and alumni.

(Elizabeth Maguire, BFA: Dance '11, speaking about performing arts careers)

Our office provides individual consultations and workshops throughout the school year. We encourage students to take advantage of our various office resources including periodicals, reference books, and career handouts located in the Student Resource Center. The Center offers fliers and binders with career information for all divisions and beyond the arts. 


  • Individual consultations for resumes, biographies, cover letters, etc.
  • Membership and access to career websites
  • Interview preparation assistance
  • Class presentations and workshops
  • An extensive career library
  • On- and off-campus student employment listings
  • Internships
  • Summer festival opportunities

Gig Services

Our staff compiles a moderated list of gig opportunities submitted by external employers who are looking to hire performers for such events as weddings, staged productions, festivals, receptions, etc.

Entrepreneurial Grant Program

This program empowers students to explore and develop their unique programmatic ideas in the arts. Sponsored by Career Support Services and the Student Government Association, the grants fund innovative, impactful performance endeavors that expand the artist’s toolkit as a performer, leader, and business-person while fostering creative spirit.

NOTE: Current students must log in to the Conservatory Portal to view many of these resources.
