ICEI Career

Bridgewater State University ICEI students work on their own career goals through weekly job coaching meetings, monthly career workshops, and individualized campus internships.

Job Coaching

All first year students meet with the ICEI Career Specialist to start creating a career path based on their goals and interests. During weekly job coach meetings, students work on vocational assessments through a program called Kuder Navigator. Each student will have a career portfolio for future employment opportunities at the end of school year.

Job Coaching includes:

  • Individualized Vocational Assessments
  • Practice Applications
  • Resume Building
  • Interview Skills

Career Workshops

Our monthly career workshops focus on employment values and skills. It is a great opportunity for students to discuss career topics and experiences. Students openly discuss employment scenarios while exploring strategies and solutions; these collaborative opportunities enable our ICEI students to independently begin to develop their own career goals.

Career Workshops:

  • Dress for Success
  • Proper Etiquette
  • Developing a Resume
  • Mock Interviews

Internships

BSU ICEI students are involved in a variety of campus internships where they learn employment skills to help prepare them for paid employment. Using the MA Work-Base Learning Plan, ICEI students, Education Coaches, and ICEI Career Specialist track and evaluate progress on the job site.  Students gain confidence as they monitor their own development throughout the year and build upon their own success.

ICEI Internships on campus:

  • Art Center
  • Greenhouse
  • Fitness Center
  • Radio Station
  • Mailroom
  • Information Technology
