Mentoring and Educating Swatties
- Extern Program – participate as a workplace mentor or homestay host for students seeking mentors during a one-week job shadowing experience
- SwatWorks -- SwatWorks's micro-internships are short-term, paid, professional assignments that are similar to those given to new hires or interns. These projects enable college students to demonstrate skills, explore career paths, and build their networks, as they are mentored by Swarthmore alumni and parents. Unlike traditional internships, micro-internships will be funded through micro-grants offered by Career Services at $500 for a 40 hour project.
- Alumni Student Networking Dinner – fall and spring events connecting students with Alumni Council mentors
- Alumni Career Panels and Speakers – often coordinated with academic departments, visit campus to talk about careers for certain majors (e.g. Careers for Chemistry Majors), careers within specific fields (e.g. International Development Careers) and career topics (e.g. Networking)
- SwatTank – mentor students participating in this innovation incubator
- On Campus Recruiting – visit campus to interview students for your organization or offer an information session providing an overview of your organization and hiring needs
