Share Your Expertise

Are you interested in helping Oxy students with their professional and career development?

Hire an Oxy Tiger - Oxy students and alumni are always seeking opportunities to gain professional work experience. Encourage your organization to post employment opportunities for internships and full-time professional jobs for seniors and alumni. Post a job through the employer portal on Handshake

Student & Alumni Networking Night - This popular annual event is hosted by Career Services and the Office of Alumni & Parent Engagement.  Experienced alumni have an opportunity to network with students for a casual, yet professional meet-up.  Students are eager to learn from alumni and engage in conversations about first jobs after Oxy and about your career trajectory.

Event Participation - Speak on an alumni panel, participate in a networking event, provide career advice to students or represent your organization at an on-campus recruiting event. Share your ideas with us and we will try our best to accommodate your request.

Employer Treks - Provide an opportunity for a small group of Oxy students to experience a first-hand look at your organization. Partner with Career Services to arrange a site visit to your office location.

Day in the Life - A "Day in the Life" provides a one-day job shadowing opportunity for an Oxy student to explore a career interest and to learn from an experienced Oxy alumnus.
