Post a Job or Summer Internship for Warren Wilson Students

Summer internship and postgraduate job leads from our alumni are critical to the success of Warren Wilson students and are greatly appreciated by the Career Services Office. If you know of any positions within your organization please submit them to Career Services by email (careers@warren-wilson.edu) or post them directly yourself on OWLink. We will share your opportunity with Warren Wilson students through our online recruiting system, OWLink.

Offer a Sophomore Externship

Early January presents an opportunity for you to share your expertise with a current student and help him/her learn more about your career field. The sophomore externship program is designed to provide students with realistic exposure to occupational fields in which they are interested.  For more information on the sophomore externship program or to become an externship sponsor, contact the main office at 828-771-3759 or careers@warren-wilson.edu and you will be connected with a member of our professional staff.

Talk with your Employer About On-Campus Recruitment

Talk with your employer about recruiting for new hires at the college through our structured on-campus recruitment program. It is one of the most effective methods for your employer to recruit students and maintain a visible presence on campus. Contact the main office at 828-771-3759 or careers@warren-wilson.edu and you will be connected with a member of our professional staff.

Offer Summer Housing

The greatest need for housing is during the summer when many students pursue internships in locations other than their hometown. It can be very difficult and expensive for students to rent an apartment for three months during the summer. Oftentimes the cost of renting an apartment at the market rate for a city will deter a student from choosing to accept an internship. Your ability to offer housing to Warren Wilson students would be greatly appreciated.

Visiting Campus?

If you plan to visit campus, and would be interested in talking with students informally or as part of a career panel, please let us know. Contact the main office at 828-771-3759 or careers@warren-wilson.edu and you will be connected with a member of our professional staff.

Serve as a Career Mentor

One of the most popular ways to assist students is to serve as a Warren Wilson Career Network Volunteer through OWLink. Career mentors are willing to talk to current students about their career field, to share advice and information, and to help facilitate networking. Typically, this involves one or two conversations with a student. If both you and the student prefer, you may talk more frequently or over a longer period of time. While most alumni in OWLink are willing to talk to students when contacted, many students are hesitant to call alumni without some prior indication that the person is willing to be contacted. Consequently, students appreciate alumni who have indicated their interest in serving as a career mentor.
