What the Feld Center for Industry Alliances Does – The Feld Center helps Questrom undergraduates in their planning and career searches by forging relationships with employers to facilitate the posting of positions, attendance at career fairs, on-campus recruiting, panels, information sessions, and other networking opportunities. The Feld Center also establishing strong partnerships with the Career Advisors in the Undergraduate Academic and Career Development Center so as your search strategy becomes clear, your career advisor can refer you to an industry specialist to help enhance your search and preparedness. For more information, please visit their website.
How We Work Together – Before meeting with a Feld Center Industry Relations Manager (IRM), you would first meet with a Career Advisor in the UDC. Once you have solidified your career/industry trajectory and goals, you will work with your advisor to complete a TSP (Targeted Search Plan). After the TSP and your goals have been completed and discussed, the career advisor will alert the proper IRM of the field/industry of interest that you are prepared to meet. From there you can make contact with the Feld Center for direct scheduling.
