Five Ways to Help Hampshire Students Connect to the World of Work

Did you know that 70-80% of people find a job through personal networking?

Alumni, parents, and family members of current students are at the heart of our Hampshire network. Here are ways to get involved by sharing opportunities and knowledge that may contribute to Hampshire students' success in the world of work.

Share a Job Announcement

Sharing job announcements through SPARC is a great way to support job-searching Hampshire students and recent alums.

Share an Internship Opportunity

An integral part of bridging academic studies with hands-on experience, internships are especially meaningful when they come through personal channels.

Help Fund an Internship

Not all students have the financial means to participate in an internship, especially if it is unpaid. Your support can help a Hampshire student have a life-changing opportunity.

Visit this page and write "SPARC Internship Fund" in the "If other, describe a specific fund" field.

Participate in Online Networks

Make yourself available to student and alum inquiries about your work and graduate school experiences.

Offer Career Advice On-Campus Through Alum 1-2-1

Enjoy being back on campus and personally sharing your experience and ideas with students exploring your professional field.

We are very appreciative of your willingness to offer assistance to current students and alumni. If you have questions, please contact us at 413.559.5445 or
