The Lawrence Difference

Lawrentians are informed, independent thinkers who will add unique perspective and value to your team.  A world-class liberal arts education helps students develop critical thinking and communication skills that will allow them to adapt quickly in an ever-changing world. They are writers, leaders, and global citizens.

  • Info Sessions or 1:1 Coffee Conversations 

  • Class or student organization visits or presentations 

  • Student career treks to specific cities or on-site field trips to employers 

  • Mock interviews 

  • On campus interviews

Hire a Viking (Alumni)

We encourage our alumni to consider hosting an intern or hiring a Lawrentian, and the Viking Connect Job Board makes it easy to post and connect with students for hiring purposes.  

Interested in exploring the possibility of hosting an intern? Contact Mandy Netzel, Assistant Director of Employer & Alumni Relations. 

Internship Resources

Hosting an academic year or summer intern can be a rewarding experience, while filling a short term need or project within your organization. We are happy to connect you with students who are interested in interning with your organization. 

As defined by NACE, an internship is an extension of learning done in the classroom and provides space for practical application of classroom knowledge. An internship experience should have a defined beginning and end, and skills learned should be transferable to other employment settings.  

To assist in creating structured learning for your intern, Lawrence has created a document to create space for your intern and set learning goals. Please see the document below.  

If your intern is part of our summer internship program, we will also collect feedback from you in the form of a mid-term and final evaluation. We can also provide support or intervention if you need assistance with intern interaction or behaviors.
