Volunteer with Us
The following are ways in which alumni and parents volunteer their time and talents in working with students. The Office of Career Services is also happy to discuss additional ideas. Contact Erin Jennings at email@example.com or ( 610) 330-5115 for more information.
PROVIDE GUIDANCE FOR STUDENTS
AlumNet – Share your expertise and passion for your work by being a part of our AlumNet database. Career services staff work with students and alumni to provide lists from this database for networking purposes.
Networking nights – Attend a regional networking night held during the academic year. Locations vary.
Mock interviews in the field – Conduct mock interviews, either at your work place or via telephone.
Alumni dinner panels – Participate in one of the panel presentations and dinners held on campus throughout the academic year (career topics vary).
On-campus workshop/panel presenter – Return to campus and share your expertise with students. Topics and times vary throughout the academic year.
Employer liaison – Serve as a contact to support a recruiting relationship between employer and Lafayette, and/or provide current information regarding job postings.
Information sessions – Share information with students highlighting your organization or industry on campus.
Resume collections – Receive resumes collected by career services, based on specific criteria, for internships or entry-level positions.
On-campus interviews – Conduct interviews on campus for internship or full-time positions.
PROVIDE EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING FOR STUDENTS
Externship host – Host a student for a two- to five-day job shadowing experience over their January break. Students are not paid and are responsible for their own transportation and housing (although some hosts do provide housing as an option). Externships can be structured in many ways and the goal is to provide an experience that offers a realistic understanding of a career field. Learn more.
Internship Host – Provide a summer internship experience or connect students with existing internships at your place of employment. An internship provides a balance between the learning objectives of the student and the specific work an organization needs completed.
