GETTING INVOLVED WITH CAREER SERVICES: HOW YOU CAN HELP
Hire Wabash: Full-Time and Internships
When you are seeking employees or interns, look to your alma mater. We’ll post your position listing at no charge and also send targeted heads-up emails to alert our users of your opportunity. We conduct resume referrals for alumni on a regular basis as well. You are also welcome to set up On-Campus Interviews, Information Sessions, and/or participate in our networking event both on and off-campus. To discuss the possibilities and the best ways for you to recruit, contact us.
Indiana Lilly Internships - If your internship is based in Indiana, contact Roland Morin for information on this grant- and alumni-funded opportunity.
Small Business Internship Fund – if your internship opportunity is outside Indiana, with a small business or start-up, contact Cassie Hagan. This program is funded exclusively by alumni gifts.
Engage Wabash: Externships and Networking
An externship is a shorter duration experience which provides a flexible way for all students to better understand potential vocational options, experiment with new possibilities, and test how their interests and skills apply in particular jobs. For more information, questions, or to host a Wabash student for an externship, please contact Cassie Hagan.
Wabash Career Alliances are essentially groups of alumni experienced in specific industries/fields who help us better connect and serve students with an interest in careers in such industries.
Participate in networking events. We create and manage a range of events and programs each year utilizing alumni expertise and participation to help Wabash students prepare for success. These programs change somewhat each year to reflect student interests, needs, and our budgetary restraints, but usually include:

- Professional Immersion Experience Trips
- Live@Wabash Career Talks (group Skype)
