Eligible students can work in a variety of on-campus jobs, such as in campus centers, recreation centers, libraries, and University departments. Additionally, students can work in on-campus and off-campus paid community service positions for non-profit agencies and organizations in areas related to education and literacy, human and social services, law and public policy, arts and humanities, multicultural, diversity and social justice, health and business.

Bloustein Alumni Career Support

We want to help our alumni continue to develop your career and build upon the skills gained with your Bloustein degree. Many career resources are offered to you through the RU Alumni Association, Bloustein Career Services and Rutgers University Career Services, outlined below. If you have questions, please contact one of our dedicated career management specialists (see side panel for contact information).

We Need Your Support, Too!

Please consider ‘paying it forward’ to current Bloustein students by recruiting our students, participating in our career events, serving as an industry expert on a career panel, presenting a professional development workshop, or becoming a mentor.  Additionally, send us your internship or job opportunities for our students or fellow alumni, and we will post them onto our MHA Job Board or our Urban Planning & Policy Job Board.
