Career Connections & Campus Career Events

Career Connections

Since October 2004, The Office of Alumni Relations has partnered with a number of academic and other departments to bring alumni back to campus for a program known as the Career Connections Speaker Series. Career Connections is designed to help current students who are considering their career options and resources. Alumni are asked to give a 25-30 minute presentation offering their personal expertise and advice on their career followed by a question and answer session. During the academic year, The Office of Alumni Relations offers a minimum of six Career Connections programs covering a variety of topics and majors.

If you are interested in participating in the Career Connections Speaker Series, please contact Saige Wilhite, assistant director of alumni relations, at 318-869-5115 or

Career Fairs & Events

Professional Development offers several Graduate and Professional Career Fairs for Centenary students and young alumni to network with companies and organizations recruiting for jobs and internships.

If you are interested in recruiting Centenary students for internships or full-time positions, please contact Professional Development at 318-869-5208.

Mock Interviews

The Mock Interview Program is designed to help students and young alumni prepare for the interviewing process. Alumni can assist by volunteering their time to come to campus and conduct half hour practice interviews and provide feedback on each interviewee’s interviewing skills.

To participate in the mock interview program, please contact Professional Development at 318-869-5208.

Classroom & Student Organization Presentations

Professional Development can help you create awareness and promote your company or organization to current Centenary students by partnering with faculty and student organizations. These 30 minute to one hour presentations involve sharing general information about your company or organization, including career opportunities available for students or recent graduates.

Whereas Career Connections allows you to share your personal expertise and advice regarding your career, these presentations to classes and student organizations allow you to advertise and actively recruit quality Centenary students for full-time positions and internships.

If you are interested in giving a presentation to a class or student organization, please contact Professional Development at 318-869-5208.
