Partner with Us
The Chirico Career Center invites alumni to partner with us to help Providence College students prepare for, and achieve career success. Help our future alumni explore opportunities, develop experience and launch their careers. We offer a variety of ways for you to give back by providing meaningful ways to connect with students. Here are ways you can partner with us to help students GET HIRED!
Prepare a Friar
While we know not every Friar is in a position to Hire a Friar, but that doesn’t mean you can’t play a part. By sharing career advice, sharing a contact, or referring a student to your HR department, can help to open the door to opportunities.
Post and Internship or Entry-Level Job
Handshake is our database of internships/jobs that current students and alumni can search when looking for opportunities to apply to. If your organization is not already connected to PC, you will need to register in Handshake, and once your organization is approved, you will then be able to post opportunities.
Share Career Information & Advice
Be a resource to current students as a member of FriarLink, our alumni-student career network. Join the hundreds of alumni that have volunteered to help PC students with their career development by sharing career information and advice. To join, visit FriarLink and create your profile.
Participate in the Winter Break Alumni Shadowing Day Program
This program has been exposing students to various careers for over 25 years! It provides students with an opportunity to observe alumni in their work setting for a day, during the College’s winter intersession. Alumni volunteers join the program by being part of FriarLink, our Alumni-Student online networking database. In October, alumni will have the option to join the Shadowing Program in FriarLink by answering a few additional questions that students review and apply to. Appropriate students are then matched to desired shadowing opportunities.
Be Part of a Career Program
The Chirico Career Center offers a variety of programs to educate and inform students about various careers and industries. These programs include: classroom or club presentations, participating in a “Careers In…” series, hosting a site visit, and more. Contact us to discuss way you can volunteer for a future program.
