Jennifer Graham

Senior Assistant Director, Pulsifer Undergraduate Career Development Center

Jennifer Graham

Jen joined Bentley in April 2016 to build and maintain our relationships with corporate partners as the Assistant Director of Employer Relations.  She worked with our corporate partners to connect with our students through events such as job shadows, site visits, information tables, employer drop in hours, and case competitions. She transitioned into her role as Assistant Director in the Pulisfer Undergraduate Career Development Center in January 2018 and is the dedicated Career Coach for Computer Information Systems, Data Analytics, Liberal Studies (except Media, Arts, & Society),  Management majors in HR & Global Management concentrations, and Bachelor of Arts students

Prior to Bentley, Jen worked at MIT Sloan in the MBA employer relations space, collaborating with hiring firms to maximize their visibility on campus. Jen graduated from Suffolk University in 2011 with a degree in International Affairs and is currently enrolled in the Bentley University Part time MBA program studying Business Analytics.

One quick fun fact: Jen has a strong interest in sustainable business and social impact- interning at local non profits as an undergrad and being a member of Net Impact’s Boston chapter. Her interest in sustainable business stemmed from her college job working for Ben& Jerry’s- a corporate brand that turned their thoughtful practices into success. Her favorite flavor of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream? Cherry Garcia.

Jen’s favorite part about working within Pulsifer Career Development Center is her colleagues. Her top 5 strengths exhibit a lot of relationship building characteristics so it’s no wonder she enjoys working with such a collaborative (& fun!) team.

Dedicated Career Coach for the following students:

  • Computer Information Systems
  • Data Analytics
  • Liberal Studies Majors (except Media, Arts, & Society)
  • Management majors in Human Resources & Global Management concentrations
  • Bachelor of Arts Candidates

In lieu of drop-ins, I have opened up more one on one advising appointments for fall 2020. Please sign up for an appointment via Handshake or by emailing me at jgraham@bentley.edu.

Want to Fix Tech’s Gender Gap? Start by Listening to These Women

Screen Shot 2021-03-10 at 10.12.38 AM

In 2018, Amazon scrapped its in-house applicant tracking system because of one major flaw: it didn’t like resumes containing the word “women,” so if an applicant listed “mentoring women entrepreneurs” as one of their achievements, they were out of luck. The system had been trained to vet applicants by observing patterns in resumes submitted to the company over a 10-year period, the majority of which had come from men—a reflection of the tech industry’s increasingly glaring gender gap.
