Online Job Databases and Job Boards
BentleyLink is a web-based, fully automated campus recruiting program that enables graduate students to meet and interview with recruiting representatives from various companies. Each year, approximately 200 local, regional and national employers visit the campus to conduct initial interviews with eligible students who are seeking full-time or internship opportunities. We strongly urge all students to upload a résumé to BentleyLink. Your information is confidential and employers do not have access to it unless you apply for a specific opportunity.
To sign in, go to BentleyLink. Enter your username and password, which was emailed to you at the beginning of the academic year. (Please note: Do not register for a new account.) If you do not know your username and password, click on "Forgot Password" and enter your Bentley email address. A new password will be emailed to you.
