As a parent, you know the interests and talents of Brandeis students better than anyone. Partner with the Hiatt Career Center to be a part of the career development process for current students in one or more of the following ways:
From advice for a recent grad seeking entry-level policy research opportunities in Washington, DC, to alumni deciding between a Master’s and a PhD, the Brandeis University Career Connections group on LinkedIn is your opportunity to connect with current Brandeis students and alumni about career-related topics of interest to you. Our networking group is the place to ask questions and share information in a Brandeis-friendly environment.
Brandeis students love hearing what others have done to get to where they are in their careers. By sharing your story at one of our 200+ campus events - like panels, webinars, workshops, industry-specific networking events and one-on-one mock and informational interviews - you can inspire students to explore new careers and follow in your footsteps. While many of our events take place on the Brandeis campus, others are also offered in major cities, including New York, Boston, and Washington, DC, as well as online.
If you would like to learn more about how to become involved with these activities, or have suggestions to offer, please contact Alexandra Anweiler Stephens, associate director of career programs and engagement, at (781) 736-3623.
As Brandeis parents, you represent a rich array of experiences and expertise, and can offer incredible insights, advice, and leads to current students looking to follow in your footsteps. Through Hiatt's latest program, Wisdom Wanted, Brandeis students write ads seeking career advice, then we email the ads directly to parent and alumni volunteers like you!

There are few better ways for a Brandeis supporter to make a direct impact on a student’s educational experience than making a gift in support of the Hiatt Career Center’s World of Work (WOW) program.
WOW provides generous stipends for undergraduate students pursuing unpaid summer internships. Not only do the students gain valuable real-world work experience, they return to campus with a sharper career focus and a better appreciation for the types of skills and knowledge they will need after graduation.
By eliminating financial barriers, the WOW program enables students to explore career fields, gain new insights, and learn about the world of work. Students may work in any career field, domestic or abroad, for public, private, or non-profit organizations.
Learn more about the program and discover the impact that our students’ internship experiences have had on them by visiting the new World of Work Summer Internship Blog. If you would like more information about Hiatt’s World of Work program, please contact Jackie Blesso, WOW program manager, at (781) 736-3627.
