Fall 2014 Volunteer Opportunities

MBA Career Immersion

MBA Career Immersion is a four-day event held during the week between the conclusion of Mod I and the start of Mod II, that focuses on the core career development skills, from understanding recruiter expectations to personal branding and business etiquette. Career Immersion is designed to include a diverse set of learning platforms: functional panels, alumni presentations, interactive labs, simulated interview sessions and student association-sponsored treks.

Share your career experiences with MBA students over lunch on Monday, October 13 or Tuesday, October 14 during a Round-table discussion in the Business Building. If you have experience in the finance, marketing, or supply chain industries, and are interested in being a part of this initiative, please contact Jennifer Crispell, Director of Alumni Relations. Space is limited.

    Ongoing Opportunities

    Smeal students are often looking for quick advice from someone who works in a specific industry, company, or who lives in a specific part of the country or world.

    If you are interested in offering your insights and experiences to a student on a one-off basis, please indicate that you are willing to "Give Career Advice" on the Volunteer Interest Form.

    Additionally, by joining the official LinkedIn Group for Smeal alumni, you can connect with current students and share your advice in an on-line forum. Smeal is encouraging students to create a profile on LinkedIn and training them to reach out to alumni for advice in a professional manner.
