Throughout the year, alumni and parent volunteers share their expertise, advice and career success stories at career workshops, professional development seminars, industry panel presentations, social media discussions and networking events.

Opportunities to participate may occur both on campus and in your local area.

Corporate Liaisons

We seek to establish and cultivate ongoing relationships with organizations who want to interview and select our students and graduates for internships and full-time jobs.

Employers may post full or part-time internship and  job opportunities for students and alumni. We also include other services available to you to help in the recruiting process.

College Advancement Opportunities

Regional Networks are a great way to stay connected with Saint Anselm and meet local Anselmians in your own backyard. Become a volunteer with one of our Regional Alumni Networks and help strengthen the Saint Anselm Community in your area. Network volunteers help to plan social and career networking events, panel discussions, sports outings, community service projects and more. Volunteer commitments can vary, so even if you are short on time there is an opportunity for you to get involved that will have a big impact. 

Reunion Volunteer
Reunion volunteers are crucial in the success of their reunion weekend. Reunion volunteers participate in regular conference calls with committee members and College Advancement staff to review communication strategies and receive planning updates. Volunteers also personally contact members of their class to encourage attendance at reunion and participation in their class giving efforts.

Outreach Ambassadors help support College Advancement activities by helping advance the reach and reputation of the college. Outreach ambassadors use social media and other communication vehicles to share Saint Anselm news, accomplishments and stories.
