Partnering with the CCO

As an alumna, students truly enjoying hearing what you are doing and the path you took to get to where you are today. For this reason, we have many different ways that you can connect to the current students on campus.

Recruit Students and Alumnae

If your organization or employer is searching for talented professionals, consider recruiting Saint Mary’s students and alumnae for your full-time and internship needs.  We can work with you recruit qualified candidates by ensuring your opportunities are advertised with students and alumnae as well as posted in the Go BELLES system.  In addition, we offer on-campus recruiting services to employers.

Mentor and Network with Students

Mentoring relationships and networking is very critical throughout the lifespan and Saint Mary’s students are no exception!  Many of our students find great value in developing relationships with alumnae who have forged a career path in an area that is of interest to them.  If you are interested in serving as either a mentor or networking contact for students, consider joining the CareerCrossings and SMC Alums LinkedIn groups.  Through these groups, you will be able to serve as a resource for students to contact you regarding job/internship searching, resources for relocating and much more!
