SEAS and Industry

SEAS partners with industry in a number of ways. Whether your organization is interested in research, direct interaction with students and faculty, or partnership on multiple levels, we will work with you to craft an engagement strategy that reflects your company’s interests. Our primary goal is to build long-term partnerships that support our students and faculty, while advancing SEAS’ mission, vision and values.

The following are some of the ways that your company can actively engage with SEAS. Please contact Ellie Carlough, Director of Corporate Partnerships or Keith Karasek, Director of Experiential and Career Development, for further information.

Recruiting

Job/Internship Postings

Internships and post-graduation positions should be posted on Crimson Careers (CC), the jobs database maintained by the Faculty of Arts and Sciences Office of Career Services (OCS). CC reaches all undergraduates and students in the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, including students in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.

Career Fairs

The Office of Career Services runs a number of Career Fairs throughout the year.  If you'd like a recommendation as to which fair would be best for your company, contact Keith Karasek, Director of Experiential and Career Development or OCS directly.
