Help define Babson’s future by getting involved with key program and volunteer opportunities across campus from career-related programs to admission recruiting to professional development opportunities for your organization.
How do I post an internship or job opportunity to Babson students?
Posting a position is easy. Register your company on Career Connections and then post your position. Career Connections is a shared campus platform that will allow you to post opportunities to undergraduate and graduate students as well as alumni.
What companies recruit through Babson’s campus recruiting program?
We work with companies large and small from every industry you can think of to identify great undergraduate and graduate student talent for their business needs.
How can I help my company recruit Babson students?
Be an advocate for talent, and connect your company to Babson! If your company is currently hiring for full-time positions or summer internships, consider posting the positions with Babson. Career Connections is our online tool where you can post job openings. In addition, there are many engagement activities your company can participate in to build employer brand and identify top talent. For more information on ways to engage, please contact the Centers for Career Development team.
May I serve as a mentor, help with informational interviews, or serve on a career panel or résumé critiques?
Absolutely. The Centers for Career Development welcome any opportunity to connect current students with alumni working within their areas of interest. We offer several ways to engage: programs such as Résumé Critique Night, mock interviews, and walk-in hours as an Employer in Residence. In addition, CCD manages a Professional Network (ProNet) through our job-posting platform Career Connections. Having a presence here allows students to reach out to you directly to learn more about your career path and industry-specific experience.
May I represent my company at the Career Expo?
The Career Expo and Internship Fair are two events for undergraduate students that are great opportunities to connect about current job openings and internships. We enjoy seeing many of our alumni join us to represent their companies and interact with our students. For more information, visit www.babson.edu/recruiting.
Where can I find more information about the qualifications for both programs?
Information about our undergraduate program, admissions process, and evaluation criteria can be found on the Undergraduate Admission website. Qualifications for the graduate programs can be found on our Graduate Admissions website.
May I write a letter of reference? How do I recommend someone for admission?
Yes, we encourage alumni and friends of Babson to recommend students who they feel would be successful at Babson. For undergraduate candidates, please write a formal letter of reference and address it to Dean of Undergraduate Admission Courtney Minden. For Graduate student referrals, please submit information to our Alumni Referral Program.
Can I help by doing interviews, attending a College fair, or assist in another way?
Yes! The Undergraduate Admission and Graduate Admissions offices are always looking for alumni and friends of the College to help. Undergraduate Admission has a few ways to participate in the Admission process:
- Interview Ambassador Program
- Email Ambassador Program
- Representative to Undergraduate College Fairs
The Graduate School encourages you to join the Admission Ambassadors program, and share your experience with prospective graduate students. Please contact Johanna Beers, associate director, Graduate Admissions, to learn more about volunteer opportunities.
Are legacies given any preference in admission?
All legacy applicants are given a second review by the head of Admissions: Dean of Admission and Director of Admissions, for Undergraduate and Graduate, respectively.
How can I financially support Babson and/or encourage others to donate?
You can direct your gift to financial aid, faculty, academic programs, athletics—any part of the Babson experience that continues to resonate with you—or we can apply it to where it will have the greatest impact. Give online, learn about matching gifts, planned giving, volunteering, and more ways to support Babson College.
How do I volunteer to help students beyond admissions and career services?
There are many opportunities to help current students. The Coaching for Leadership and Teamwork Program (CLTP) is one of our largest alumni-supported initiatives. Connecting with students through affinity group activities, serving as a speaker for one of our annual student-led forums, and joining students in service from Ghana to Boston are other opportunities. For a full listing of all the opportunities, visit the Alumni and Friends Network Volunteer Opportunities page or the Alumni Groups and Clubs page. For additional information, contact Effie Marthinsen.
How do I volunteer and connect to other alumni?
There are countless ways to volunteer for and connect to your alumni network. Volunteering is as easy as becoming an adviser for the Babson Alumni in Support of Entrepreneurs (BASE) group, an Alumni Admissions volunteer, joining the Babson Alumni Association efforts, or signing up for your Reunion Committee. To connect with alumni, find a regional club in your area, host an event, list your Babson business in the Alumni Business Directory, and find us on social media! Come back to campus for our annual Back to Babson or attend one of our upcoming events around the world.
How do I get involved around the world?
How do I share news about myself or a classmate with the College?
You can post a Class Note, submit an item (with or without a photo) to Babson Magazine, nominate yourself or an alum for one of our annual recognition awards—Alumni Leadership Award, Alumni Entrepreneur Hall of Fame, Rising Star (entrepreneur).
