Hiatt Career Center forms new 'Engagement Team'

A new team formed within the Hiatt Career Center will strengthen connections between students, employers and alumni to build a more robust culture of networking, recruiting and career education at Brandeis. 
The new Hiatt External Engagement Team is headed by associate director, Melissa O’Karma who will lead an expanded team of 5 full-time staff with a mission to bring together employers, alumni, parents, volunteers and students. Melissa recently oversaw the successful development of Hiatt’s Rise Together Mentor Network with alumni relations.
“Our collaboration with alumni is a vital component of our work, and the new External Engagement Team will enable better coordination between alumni as volunteers, mentors, and employers across Hiatt programs, broadening our external reach and elevating our overall engagement strategy,” said Hiatt Career Center Director Jon Schlesinger.
The new team will help Hiatt expand on efforts implemented in the last two years including growing The Hiatt Ecosystems and Recruiting at Brandeis.  
“By integrating and streamlining our service offerings we’ll be able to increase the quality and depth of employers we are connected with, and offer more events for students and alumni to start or further their careers,” Schlesinger said.
