The College of Arts and Sciences has the benefit of having an engaged alumni population that wants to give back, and the Advising & Career Services Center wants to help you tap into this great resource. Numerous alumni have agreed to open their worksite for the benefit of current students over spring break during the week of March 14, 2016, for job shadows, informational interviews or coffee chats.  These one on one conversations are invaluable for you to learn and seek advice on your career interests, the industry, and the corporate culture of a potential future workplace.  It is also a great way for you to build and expand your professional network.  The opportunities listed below reflect what our great alumni were able to offer.

Requirements

To participate, students must meet all of the following requirements:

Availability must match the dates listed for the opportunity; however, a lot of the opportunities have flexible dates within Spring break.   

For job shadows and coffee chats, you must have housing and transportation in the location listed. Opportunities are available in cities across the country, wherever alumni who are willing to host are located. You will be able to express interest in opportunities near your hometown, as well as those where you know you would be able to stay for a few days. For example, if there is an NYC opportunity and you live in NYC (or could commute easily to NYC), you’re all set.  If there is an opportunity in NYC you’re interested in but you’re not from NYC, you must be able to confirm you will have a place to stay and resources to travel to and from specified locations. 

For informational interviews, you will have the option to conduct these over the phone or through Skype so you do not necessarily need to be in the location listed.  Please read through the list carefully.   

If you are matched with an alumnus through this program, you must be available to attend a training session on Friday, March 4, from 2 pm to 3 pm OR Sunday, March 6, from 4 pm to 5 pm. No exceptions.

How to Express Interest

Read through the opportunities below that pertain to you. You MAY express interest in more than one opportunity and are, in fact, encouraged to do so if other opportunities are of interest to you and feasible for you to do. This will increase your chances of being matched.

Please complete this FORM to express your interest. 

The deadline to apply is Monday, February 29 at 5:00 pm.  Students will be matched largely on a “first come, first served” basis. For more information contact Sue Casson at smcasson@syr.edu
