Giving Back to Our Office

How To "Hire A Tiger"

As you are well aware, our current students and alumni are facing one of the toughest job markets in the past 30 years particularly as a number of employers are laying off and cutting back on hiring opportunities. 

Since this challenging economy is negatively impacting both our students and alumni we want to do all that we can to help our brothers.  We are known for our strong and loyal alumni network throughout the Commonwealth, so let's put it to use.  Won't you join the Career Development Office and Hire a Tiger?   

The Hire a Tiger initiative is simple.  If you are aware of any internship, entry-level job, or experienced job opportunities with your company or organization, please let us know.  Here's how we use the information:

  • We will post the internship and entry-level job opportunities on TigerConnections our web-based recruiting system for students and young alumni. 

  • We will post the experienced job opportunities in the Career Section of The Network of Hampden-Sydney College for our older alumni.

In order to post and advertise these internship and job opportunities we will need some basic information from you.  We need contact information for yourself, or the appropriate recruiting contact, information about your company, and of course a job description that details projects for the candidate, key skills and abilities sought, and application details.  You can also utilize our alumni career development "how-to" guide here.  

You can also use both of these systems to search for entry level and experienced jobs.  For entry level and experienced jobs, register on TigerConnections as a student.   If you are an alum looking for job opportunities posted by other alumni, register on The Network of Hampden-Sydney College .

Again, it is time for us to help take care of our brothers.  If you have any questions or need any additional information on our Hire a Tiger initiative please give us a call at (434) 223-6106 or email the Director of Career Education and Vocational Reflection, Ellen Masters, at
