Mentoring and Educating Swatties

  • 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.
  • 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
