Social Impact Job, Internship and Volunteer Fair
Thursday, October 20, 2016, 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Levin Ballroom, Usdan Student Center
This event is co-sponsored by the Brandeis University Hiatt Career Center, Department of Community Service and the Waltham Group. Year after year, employers have reported that this event provides an unparalleled opportunity to identify and recruit top Brandeis students. Attending this fair will allow your organization to recruit students from all class years for job opportunities, volunteer roles, internships and year-in-service programs. Lunch will be provided before the fair.
Why Brandeis? There is a deeply rooted commitment to social justice and service among Brandeis students and alumni, making jobs, internships and volunteer roles that make a positive social impact very popular among students. The fields of education, health, social and human services and Year In Service programs continue to be among the top areas of employment for Brandeis graduates. In addition, Brandeis undergraduates complete more than 60,000 hours of service each academic year and are eager to support our community partners and their communities.
This fair aims to help employers and community partners connect with Brandeis students, faculty, and staff who are interested in working with your organization as a volunteer, staff member, intern, or Year in Service corps member.

CAMPUS ARRIVAL & PARKING
