Students meet with a potential employer at the career fair

Ways to Get Involved

 

Pizza with Professionals:

A series of informal sessions designed to give students the opportunity to connect with alumni from a wide variety of industries, all while enjoying pizza and drinks. Students who attend these sessions will have the opportunity to hear from accomplished individuals as they share the experiences that took them from their time as undergraduates to their current professional roles. We hope that these sessions will help students: gain in-depth knowledge about a specific organization or career path, increase their connections and professional networks, and learn or be inspired first hand from the experiences of others. These sessions provide alumni with the opportunity to connect with students and share their career stories, and to inform the campus population about their company and open positions.

 

Mock Interview Mania Week:

A week designated in mid fall and spring semesters where we ask alumni to volunteer for the day or half-day to host mock interviews for students. The volunteers complete brief evaluations of the students they interviewed to provide instant feedback and constructive criticism.

 

Local, Regional, or City/Major Specific Site Visits:

Host a site visit at your place of employment. Typically, site visits are 1-2 hours long, and may consist of a variety of components to best meet the needs of the students and resources available within your company. This may include a brief tour, discussion with an HR representative, or panel presentations.
