Brac University’s Office of Career Services and Alumni Relations (OCSAR) is a very significant department, vested with the duty to facilitate its students’ efficient and effective transition into their professional life which will ultimately lead to successful career for them.
It is an obvious fact that you will not remain students forever and will have to make the jump into the competitive world of work through an arduous and often grueling recruitment process; which can be made much more manageable, and even perhaps fun, if you use the support and resources that the OCSAR makes available to you.
The responsibilities to provide support and guidance lie at the core of the OCSAR, defining its function and criteria for success. The success of OCSAR is measured by the long term professional accomplishments of you, its students, whom we are ultimately here to help.
Whether you need help writing a CV, or structuring a cover letter; require a better understanding of the ‘market’, 'corporate structures' or any other (possibly strange sounding) concepts; if your priority is winning an internship with a big firm, improving your interview technique, or gaining the confidence to convey your strengths intelligently to recruiters; even if you need a quick chat with one of our advisors to de-stress and make sense of the complex process of choosing a career, have no fear, we are here to help.
As a department responsible for helping you prepare for the recruitment process and realize your potential over the course of your career, our programs have been developed to offer solutions to the inevitable challenges you will face along the way. For some students enrolment (to the PSDP for example) is mandatory, for others it is not, but every student should view enrolment as an advantage of considerable value that will 'give you the edge' over other applicants competing for jobs.
Also, OCSAR organizes on campus recruitment sessions for graduating students alongside of internship placement to ensure the placement of our students in the job market.
After graduation, consider OCSAR as your home because you are proud alumni of Brac University. Officers of Alumni Relations are here to welcome you, address your issues & provide help, at the same time Brac University desires you to contribute to your very own institute with your valuable suggestions for academic or administrative process improvement, your engagement as resource person and your tangible or intangible contribution in various positive value addition programs of Brac University.
OCSAR is a platform where you prepare to end a journey as a student and begin a journey as proud alumni of Brac University.
We expect to work together to make Brac University a place where innovative, knowledgeable, academically sound, socially responsible leaders are groomed and help make the world a better place.
Our vision is to empower students and alumni to achieve success in the ‘world of work’ and ensure that they have the right competencies, skills set and overall approach for professional success. We facilitate opportunities to build lifelong relationships with and between our graduating students and alumni who are our most effective ambassadors.
Our mission is to provide an integrated range of high quality career-focused services which meet the needs of our graduating students and prepares them for professional success. We aspire to create well rounded, socially aware, responsible human beings and conscious citizens.
