Services for Employers

  • Post internships or jobs for students and full-time positions for graduating seniors and alumni in Handshake.
  • Boardroom Luncheon Series – Senior decision-makers and thought-leaders are invited to interact with students and faculty in classroom or conference room settings followed by open conversation with students over a catered lunch.
  • On-Campus Information Sessions – Reserve a classroom or an information table for an informal, yet productive, way to educate students about your organization.  Sessions can be scheduled anytime during the year.
  • On-Campus Interviews are a great follow-up to an information session or an opportunity for you to fill your internship or open position needs. Schedule time in our Employer Relations Suite to meet and interview students for opportunities within your organization.
  • Employer Roundtables provide an opportunity for you to meet and network with our staff and other area employers. Roundtables enable career advisors to hear, first-hand, the expectations and challenges of employers.
  • Visiting Professional Series – Qualified professionals representing a variety of occupations are invited to speak with students on campus about industry-specific topics and share goal-setting and career development tips.  Students benefit from an enhanced understanding of specific careers, expanded options and a growing network of professional contacts.

If you would like to participate in any of the above-described programs, please contact Barbara Carnevale via email at carnevale_barbara@wheatoncollege.edu or call 508-286-3552.
