Hire Wake Forest Talent!

It’s hard to believe that the fall semester is drawing to a close, and we are already gearing up for the spring semester! Our Employer Relations team works to connect organizations seeking to recruit applicants for full-time and internship positions with our Demon Deacon student populations (undergraduates from the College and School of Business and graduate students from the Arts & Sciences, School of Business, and Divinity). 

In order to do this, we need your help! If your organization or network contacts are seeking to hire talent, please connect them with us through the following opportunities! 

●     Hire a Deac! To learn more about how to hire Wake Forest talent for internships or job opportunities, please contact Lori Sykes at sykeslh@nullwfu.edu 

●     Career FairJan. 24, Noon-4 p.m. Meet hundreds of qualified WFU students who are seeking jobs or internships. This is our largest student recruiting event in the spring semester. Sign up to attend our Spring Fair here. 

●     Student-Athlete Career Night, Feb. 5, 6-8 p.m. Our student-athletes not only compete for one of the most competitive schools, but they do so while being all-stars both on and off the field. Organization representatives can join us in February as we partner with the Athletics Department in this unique networking event for student-athletes. Click here to register for the 5th Annual Student-Athlete Career and Networking Night. 

●     STEM SLAM, Feb. 20, 5-8 p.m. If you’re looking to reach students interested in STEM industries, you’ll not want to miss the 4th Annual STEM SLAM. Held in the state-of-the-art Innovation Quarter in downtown Winston-Salem, this event enables students to learn more about careers in STEM industries and to network with organizations who are interested in hiring them. Register for the STEM SLAM here. 

●     Liberal Arts Showcase, March 21. We take pride in our liberal arts students and will be launching our first Liberal Arts Showcase in March. This event will offer select organizations an opportunity to speak with Wake Forest students who are eager to learn about corporate diversity initiatives, to network with some great entry-level and intern talent, and to build brand awareness on the WFU campus. The event will be open to all students, but targeting those from diverse and underrepresented populations including LGBTQ, students with disabilities, ethnic minorities, and women. More details are to come as we are still in the planning stages for this event. Sign up to receive updates.

If Your Student Has a Problem

One of the best ways parents/families can help their students is to let them solve their own problems. Use the Stop, Drop, and Roll method when your student contacts you with a problem.  The flyer also lists contact information for serious concerns where family intervention might be appropriate.
