Help a Student
Along our education and career paths, we encounter many helpers—from mentors and teachers to friends and colleagues who share valuable insights and advice.
Do you have the capacity to serve as a helper to current Blue Hen students and recent graduates? You can play a part in the success and in the personal and professional development of Blue Hens through mentorship, networking, offering job shadowing and insights, posting internship and job opportunities, and more. Here, you’ll find options for how to help Blue Hens succeed in their fields.
Students and alumni have been displaced from jobs or are seeking out opportunities to gain professional experience through internships, jobs and gigs. The UD Career Center, Lerner Career Services Center and Graduate Student Professional Development are ready to work with you to recruit and hire talented Blue Hens for a variety of roles:
Winter Term Internship Program
If you need assistance with a short-term work project, consider offering a Blue Hen a project-based, three- to five-week internship during winter term. The University of Delaware Career Center staff will help match your needs wit ha student who has the drive and skills required for the position.
Winter Term & Summer Job Shadow Program
Connect with a student one-on-one and guide them through a typical half day or full day at your job—providing them with an insider look of your workplace and industry. Sign up to host a student for a job shadowing experience during winter term.
Registration for the 2021 Virtual Winter Job Shadow Program is now open to alumni! This year we have transitioned the program to 1-hr informational interviews over Zoom. Sign up to host a UD student for a virtual job shadow this winter by emailing Ryan Fuller at RFuller@udel.edu.
