The Ferguson Career Center and Office of Alumni and Parent Engagement recently launched the Hire a Tiger resume directory, a new initiative allowing alumni and other community members with job or internship opportunities access to student resumes making hiring a Tiger easier than ever.

Each month, students submit their resumes and cover letters to the Ferguson Career Center via Handshake. Every resume and cover letter is reviewed by Ferguson staff for quality and clarity, and then uploaded to the directory. Students select the job markets they are most interested in, and their resume materials are filed in the corresponding folders.

This latest initiative makes the Hire a Tiger platform more accessible and easier to use than ever before. 

This new system allows someone like me to have instant access to an updated catalogue of quality resumes. This also allows us all to easily reference specific needs by region.

“I used to think I didn’t have much to offer the Hire a Tiger initiative: nonprofit management and fundraising aren’t exactly traditional H-SC career paths, and I’ve never been in a hiring role,” says Jamin Barbour ’99. “But helping two students secure summer internships with my previous employer and lining up informational interviews for several recent graduates with alumni and friends in various lines of work changed my thinking. Just because I can’t hire a Tiger doesn’t mean I can’t help. Each of us—alumni, parents, & friends of the College—has professional and personal relationships that can help our young men. Those connections are invaluable to our Tigers, and our networks are just as important, if not more, than one’s ability to hire them.” 

If you are able to help a student seeking an opportunity, please feel free to contact them directly using the information provided on their resumes. You may also contact Vince Decker, Associate Director of Career Education and Advising, at vdecker@hsc.edu or Cameron Marshall ’12, Director of Alumni and Parent Engagement, at cmarshall@hsc.edu.
