Current students love to hear from you! Topics of panel presentations vary from industry aligned organizations to career development topics, and custom topics are often requested.
Allowing students to shadow your work for a full or partial day is a great way to give back to the Beaver community while providing students with an opportunity to gain real-world perspective of a potential career path. Highlight your company culture, various roles in the organization, your personal experience or career journey and get to know some current students or potential candidates. Job shadows are generally hosted in June or December to best accommodate student schedules.
Share your expertise in the classroom. Partnering closely with academic departments, the Career Development Center is often asked for industry representatives willing to share real-world experience and the impact of new technology or current trends.
Get to know some of our students and give back to Oregon State by contributing your time. Hosting an informational interview is a high impact learning opportunity for students to gain insight on industries or organizations they are interested in, and for you to share your experience and career journey with another Beaver.
