Ways for Employers to Get Involved

Employer Involvement photo - shakeCAREER FAIR – IN-PERSON! MARCH 24, 2022 – 9:30 A.M. – 1:00 P.M.

We know you are always recruiting and a university career fair is a great place to begin networking relationships with quality, future employees and students. The college and university is also one of the richest environments to get exposure for your business and graduate school programs. Be a part of this captive audience at Belhaven University's Career Fair. This fair takes place each spring semester. Register for the career fair online.


Help a student master the art of the interview, practicing something they find intimidating. Donate your time to Belhaven's Mock Interview Program. The best way to do this is through our bootcamps. In the Fall is the Career Bootcamp: Health & STEM, and in the Spring, Career Bootcamp: Business & Liberal Arts! Your involvement can greatly impact a student's career future. There will be increasing opportunities for this. Please let us know your interest and we'll work with your schedule. Ask us about our Career Bootcamps and how you can get involved!

Got Interns?

Want a great opportunity to have excellent students work toward your mission plus the possibility train future employees? Internships can be paid or unpaid for the students. Provide them with amazing real life experience and an opportunity to earn academic credit. Belhaven alumni are known throughout the business community for their grounded and principled worldview. You may advertise your internship opportunity on Handshake. Internships for academic credit must go through an approval process. For more information, please contact the Center for Career and Calling.

Cast a Job Shadow

You don't have the time or resources to dedicate to a part-time or full-time intern, but you still want to make a difference in a Belhaven student's life? Try Job Shadowing. You can dedicate one or up to three days of your choice and allow a student to shadow you while you work. There is very little preparation required on your part and the student can learn about your job just by watching you do what you'd normally be doing anyway.

Speak into the Future

Love what you do? Are you an expert or passionate about a work-related topic? Chances are there's a Belhaven student who could learn from your experience. Just step up to the podium and volunteer to be one of our topical speakers. It's low impact on your schedule and high impact on our student's future.

Share Your Ideas

Would you like to be involved? We know you possibly have some great ideas along these lines. We'd love to discuss them with you and try to make it happen. Did you have a great experience through your Alma mater's career center that you would like to see repeated? We'd like to work with you to help make it happen.
