From the Director

Megan Wallace, Director of Employer Development

In May, the Class of 2014 walked across the stage in the Robins Center to receive their diplomas. We celebrated their graduation and accomplishments and are excited for what the future holds for them. I invite you to view the 2014 graduation day video that highlights students talking about their post graduation plans.

We are now planning for the next academic year and another recruiting season.  Registration is open for the 2014-2015 On-Campus and Remote Interview Program, as well as the Fall Spider Career Expo (formerly the Corporate Career Expo), which will take place on September 16. We invite you to register for both.

This summer we traveled to New York City and will be traveling to Washington, D.C. to host Spider Interns Receptions – opportunities for alumni and current students to network.  Alumni are invited to register online or by calling Bonnie Graham at (804) 289-8656.

Our team recently returned from professional conferences (NACE, VACE, EACE) where we conducted presentations on engaging employers and alumni through the Career Services Advisory Council and attracting first years and sophomores to Career Services through cross-campus collaborations and marketing strategies.  We were also thrilled to receive the EACE Innovation in Assessment Award.

We look forward to collaborating with you in the academic year ahead. Thank you for continuing to partner with the Office of Alumni and Career Services and for Hiring Spiders

Sincerely,
