Engagement Wanted: Information for Students
A networking tool for the Classes of 2013 and 2014
Seniors and Juniors are invited to sign up for Engagement Wanted and send your requests for opportunities & advice to Carleton's network of alumni, parents, and friends.
How does it work? It's simple:
- You fill out a short Engagement Wanted "ad" describing yourself and the opportunity you're seeking: full-time work, internship, summer job, advice on breaking into a certain field, etc.
- Your ad gets emailed to alumni and parent volunteers. Beginning in early February 2013, we'll start sending a weekly digest of "Engagement Wanted" ads to alumni and parent volunteers.
- Engagement Wanted ads will be sent out each week, for 12 weeks. We plan on shutting it down around May 1, 2013.
- Connections happen. The volunteers will read your ad and contact you if they have any advice, contacts, or opportunities to offer.
- You respond! If a volunteer contacts you, it is your responsibility, nay a requirement! that you respond in a respectful and prompt manner.

- Your name, home town, and major
