Attention juniors and seniors, Alumni Job Shadow Program applications are now open!
Fairfield has a network of alumni who are willing to help as much as they can in order to see fellow Stags achieve success.

Sharpen your career focus…network with alumni in your area of interest...enhance your confidence…spend a day with a Fairfield alum and see what your future could hold! The Alumni Job Shadow Program is designed to do just that by giving students a unique and up-close look at the work required in industries they are considering.
During winter break, juniors and seniors get a firsthand look at a typical day on the job as they accompany Fairfield alumni through their work days. By shadowing our alumni, students get insight into the day-to-day demands of professions they are considering. They also receive helpful career advice from fellow Stags who have been in their shoes. With this insight, students often feel better able to plan for the types of careers they want after fairfield.
Last year, Fairfield matched 242 students and 171 alumni in organizations across various industries, including Facebook, Barclays Center, WebMD, Medtronic, LinkedIn, Heineken, Michael Kors, American Express, NYU, and many more.
This program is open to juniors and seniors only. Applications are due October 20. Students must submit a resume on Stags4Hire.

This program is sponsored by the Alumni Association and the Academic & Career Development Center.
