These talent engagement opportunities help develop genuine relationships with Seattle University

Industry Mentors

We are currently enlisting innovative, talented and successful professionals from diverse industry backgrounds, who are interested in varying degrees of student engagement. This program allows employers and industry professionals to connect with students seeking career development assistance while promoting their brand on campus.

Career Treks

Designed to give students a chance to see what working at your organization would be like, these opportunities provide students with insight into your organizational culture, various career opportunities and your recruiting process. During these site visits, students can hear directly from hiring managers and employees (especially alumni) about what they should be doing to prepare for a career in your industry.

Engineering and Tech Takeover

Popularly known as ETT, this is a series of career events and activities that bring together students, alumni and employers for networking, recruiting, industry and career education. Organizations can participate in specific career education and development topics; for example: How to ace a technical interview, early career salary negotiation etc.

Coffee Chat/AMA

Casual meetings or Ask Me Anything sessions (virtual or in person) for recruiters/alumni in individual or small group settings with students. During these events, representatives may share insights about their industry, company culture and tips for a successful application process and career success. Organizations are asked to provide food and beverages during these sessions. To connect with student clubs and organization please contact a member of our external relations team.
