The Hiatt Ecosystem

The Hiatt Career Center continually works to integrate key stakeholders both on and off-campus into our career development ecosystem. This process involves the overlap of systems and partnerships to advance the mission of supporting Brandeis students and alumni to build life-long skills during college and beyond. 



Accessible Description

Our approach is collaborative, in that, career education happens everywhere - both on and outside of campus. Partnerships range from working directly with employers, academic departments and student groups and organizations, to fostering career education within the classroom in collaboration with faculty.

Our Partners Say...

mary ballegeer“One of the best ways I’ve been able to feel connected to the Brandeis community even though my time on campus as a student has ended, is through partnering with the Hiatt Career Center. Whether it is working with students on mock interviews, sharing job postings or hosting events for recent alumni, there are many ways to give back to Brandeis through Hiatt.”

-Mary Ballegeer ’08, MBA’16, planning analyst, Single Point Partners

Viennie Chanthachack“I've really appreciated working with Hiatt as an employer for their work connecting students to recruiters (and vice versa) in the traditional sense. However, what's been more remarkable this past year was the team's willingness to invest in unique events that better assist students in making connections between their experiences and the real world. This is an early part of the career search process that can be easily overlooked by students, but it's great to see how much the Hiatt team involves employers and industry professionals to facilitate this experience.”

-Viennie Chanthachack, associate sales campus recruiter, HubSpot

sandra king“We have had a supportive and productive working relationship with the Hiatt Career Center since the inception of the CREST program several years ago. The management and coordination of our interactions with the students interested learning about and working in the commercial real estate industry have been efficient and expansive.”

-Sandra T. King, senior program advisor, CREST (Commercial Real Estate Success Training)
