Career Connections Nights are a series of networking events targeted to specific academic programs. These typically begin with a panel discussion and conclude with an open networking mixer. We invite employers to join us for all or part of the event and network with our current students. Currently, we offer separate career connections nights for accounting and finance, nursing, administration of justice and English, and look forward to adding more programs in the future. Please let us know if there are specific academic programs you are targeting so that we may match you to the appropriate event.
Our Career Treks program provides employers the opportunity to host students for a one- or two-day job shadowing experience onsite at their organization.

This program is targeted towards students in their sophomore year.
Our mentorship program connects current undergraduate students with professionals in their field of interest through an informational interview along with one-on-one conversations throughout the academic year at the employer's discretion. This program may also provide its participants with additional opportunities to connect during the year through organized events such as networking receptions, panel discussions, workshops and conferences. These events are intended to provide our undergraduate students with additional networking and learning opportunities to further explore their interest in their fields of choice. This program is targeted towards students in their junior year.
Senior Summit is a one-day career preparation conference for graduating seniors that occurs in January. Through workshops and networking events, students are able to articulate their past experiences, and synthesize and apply what they’ve learned from their personal and professional development throughout their four years at Salve to fully evaluate post-graduate options. Students learn job search and application practices and networking strategies to help them attain meaningful post-graduate employment, acceptance into graduate programs, and other professional development opportunities. We invite employers to participate in various workshops and networking events throughout the conference.
