Alumni and Parent Hosts

Fairfield alumni and parents have so much to offer today’s students! Whatever your field, you have the opportunity to introduce careers, industries, and share your own personal career experiences through in-person meetings or virtual career conversations.

Career Exploration Week: What Can I Do with this Major? Is a new program that focuses on first-year and sophomore students.  The goal of this program is to give students an overview of what you did at Fairfield to prepare for your career, what it was like to transition from college to career, and how you started your career in an industry that they are currently thinking about.

Hosts can work with their student matches to choose a virtual or in-person format, with one or more students, whichever option that is most convenient. For example, you can…

            Set up an informational Zoom call for 30 minutes to an hour. You can invite other alumni at the company to join you too.

            Schedule an in-person meeting and tour of your office (half or full day)

            Meet for a lunch conversation
