Alumni are one of our key assets for professional development
and recruiting. Come to a Career Fair to meet students and
talk about your employer and collect resumes from interested
students and alumni.
This program provides students the opportunity to visit
your worksite and “shadow” you, observing some of the activities of
an actual day-in-the-life in your profession. Shadowing experiences
are unique for every mentor and mentee, but the goal is ultimately
the same – to take a day to explore a possible career field and to
lay the groundwork for future networking possibilities.
This event will help students gain essential interview
experience by learning from those who’ve been there and done
that! Come help students brush up on their interview skills
as they head towards applying for internships, part-time positions,
full-time jobs, and/or campus leadership roles. Offer
practice and provide honest feedback when it comes to presenting
themselves professionally and answering questions.

hiring managers in informal and formal settings. If you have

a tour of your company; or an idea for a program, please do not
