Many of you have expressed interest in supporting current Simon's Rock students with their career development and transitions to life after the Rock. Thank you very much for this support!
The new Career Services office is piloting three programs this spring. Please review the descriptions provided below and sign up for any program(s) that interest you.
You can also fill out an alumni profile at College Central Network, and sign up for our mentoring network so students can contact you directly.
Thank you, and I look forward to hearing from you!

Offer an Internship or Project
Simon's Rock is in need of alumni who would like to host a current student or recent graduate for an internship, or to get help on a specific project from a student or recent graduate.
Internships and projects may be short or long-term (a few days to a few months in duration). Students have the greatest need for internships and projects that take place during the summer, and/or during the winter break from mid-December through mid-January.
Volunteer for Rocker Office Hours
Hold office hours with current students. The next Rocker Office Hours will take place during the fall semester, 2013.
Through personal conversations with alumni, students will gather information to help with career discernment, learn about what it takes to be successful within a certain career field, and benefit from the experience of someone else who graduated from college at an early age.
Each visiting alum will be scheduled for office hours withmultiple students. For alumni not able to attend in person, virtual office hours via phone, Skype or similar can be arranged.
Advise and Connect
Help seniors plan their next steps after graduation. Participating alumni will receive the names and brief profiles of one or two seniors, so the alumni mentors can review the student information and consider how you can help the student(s).
Examples of service may include talking with a student to provide general advice on a career field or geographic location, suggesting organizations and opportunities for the student to investigate, identifying listservs that the student could join or conferences that wold be helpful to attend, introducing the student to other Rockers or contacts in the field, or circulating the student's resume.
