Each year, the Career Services Office invites Hendrix Alumni who are celebrating a milestone reunion year to connect with sophomores, juniors, and seniors seeking career advice. Best of all, if you are able to be on campus for alumni weekend, there will be an opportunity for you to meet other alumni and students who are participating in the program.

Provide Internship and Professional Experiences
With Hendrix’s commitment to engaged learning outside of the classroom, more students than ever are seeking internship experiences. Regardless of your location or office size, could you offer a meaningful career-oriented learning experience during the fall, spring, or summer either in person or virtually? While school year interns usually stay close to the Conway area, summer interns venture further out into the world. Additionally, the virtual option could be a possibility during any time of year! E-mail us a detailed description of the internship and we will post it for our students on our online job and internship board, HireHendrix. You may also submit the information via our Share An Opportunity Form or you may register for a free account on HireHendrix and post the information yourself.
