An invitation from the Student Engagement Center

Whitman alumni, we invite you to help students learn about your work... your organization... your industry. Here are three ways you can help current students connect their Whitman education to life after Whitman.
1. Host a Whitman intern in your organization - Whether paid or unpaid, students gain valuable experience by moving into the workplace to test their skills in a non-academic environment. Contact Assistant Director for Internship Programs, Victoria Wolff to learn more.

2. Connect directly with students - Whitman Connect or Whitties Helping Whitties events are virtual and in-person options for you to help mentor young Whitties or use these platforms to expand your network of Whitman connections.

3. Help your company recruit Whitman grads - Available to current students and recent graduates, Handshake is a great way to share current openings by posting them​ yourself or sharing the link with your recruiting or HR teams. Share this link: Whitman on Handshake
