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 with a student who has the drive and skills required for the position.
Student-Athlete Career Readiness
Are you a former UD student-athlete? Then you can make an even more meaningful connection with current UD student-athletes through mentoring a SAAC (Student-Athlete Advisory Committee) student, providing project-based and traditional internships, offering informational interviews and more! If you’re interested in volunteering your time and expertise to enhance UD student-athlete professional readiness, let us know!
