As we seek new opportunities and educational experiences for our students, we look to OS alumni as a valuable resource. Below are some ways for OS Alumni to contribute to the Organizational Studies Program.
Work opportunities: Hands-on experience is desired by most OS students because it allows them to combine their education with real world experience. You can assist by providing information on internships and full-time opportunities offered by your organization. Keep us informed about internship or full-time opportunities.
Recruitment: We also host companies who would like to recruit OS students. Companies, such as Deloitte and Bloomberg, have come to Organizational Studies to recruit for both internship opportunities and full-time opportunities. Interested companies, please contact the Student Services Coordinator to set up information sessions or interview days.
Individual mentoring: Students have a strong interest in speaking with alumni one-on-one about careers and about the path taken to reach job goals. You can be a valuable resource by mentoring a student via email, phone or in-person meetings, as schedules allow. We have created database accessible only to OS students and we would love to add all OS Alums.
Mock interviews, resume reviews, and job shadowing: If you have time to assist students with the job application process or if you believe you can host a student to shadow you in your organization for a day, please contact the Student Services Coordinator if you have an interest in any of these options.
Connect with WiL or ODI: Our student run organizations like Women in Leadership (WiL) and the Organizational Diversity Initiative (ODI) are always seeking ways to connect with our alumni. If you have time to chat with our students and lend any experience or knowledge you may have, please feel free to contact them. They are eager to learn from the incredible network OS provides!
