From the Director
The fall semester is in full swing and with it the fall recruiting season.
Thank you to the 65 employers who attended the Corporate Careers Expo on September 11. Over 320 students networked with representatives of a wide variety of organizations. Don't miss the upcoming Science & Health Expo on November 15. Registration is now open!
Staff and students will be taking trips off campus during fall break to explore working in the fields of finance and consulting during our Spider Road Trips to Washington, D.C. and New York City. Organizations that will be hosting our students include Barclays Capital, HBCS, Morgan Stanley, Oppenheimer, CEB, Deloitte Consulting and many more. Thank you to all these organizations and the Spider alumni who are helping our students get a first hand look at these industries.
I am happy to introduce Sandy Turnage, who joined the Office of Alumni and Career Services in August as the associate director for employer relationship management. She joins the team with career services experience having previously worked as an associate director of professional development at The College of William & Mary’s Mason School of Business.

UR SUMMER FELLOWSHIPS
In the summer of 2013, the University of Richmond awarded a total of $1 million to nearly 300 students through the UR Summer Fellowships program. UR Summer Fellowships ensure students are able to take on the internship or research opportunity that will help them gain an edge in establishing their career path. Faculty-mentored research experiences allow students to pursue original intellectual discovery while also providing them with the laboratory, field, or archival experience that enables them to compete for admission to top graduate programs. Summer internships challenge students to apply what they’ve learned in a new setting while providing traction in the professional world.
The 300 summer fellows worked in various fields, throughout the US and the world. Here is a list of all students and organizations. The experience was transformative for UR students and greatly beneficial to employers. 97% of employers responding to a post-internship survey indicated they would hire their UR Summer Fellow for a future position in their organization if circumstances permitted.
Are you interested in expanding your internship program or initiating a new program within your organization? Here is an internship toolkit to help you get started!
