Alumni engagement opportunities

Want to give back through Career Services?

Have you considered sharing your experience and expertise to assist fellow Messiah University alumni and upcoming graduates find employment opportunities?  There are several easy ways you can make a difference by getting involved in this effort.

Join the Messiah University Professional Network on LinkedIn

The MUPN has been created as a networking community for students and alumni of Messiah University.  There is a job board within the group and several subgroups that allow you to connect with others who share specific industry interests.  For assistance in getting started with LinkedIn, click here.

Share Job Openings in Your Organization

Even if you are not in a position directly responsible for hiring, send an e-mail to with the link to job openings for your company.  We will share this information on Handshake, an exclusive internship and job board for Messiah University students and alumni.

If you do not have an account, create an employer profile in our internship/job posting system, Handshake.  Go to: and click the “Employers” section. After you complete the profile (the more information you provide, the better) and are approved, you may then post your internships, part-time and full-time jobs, and register for events like the Career Expo in October and Tailgating for Jobs in the Spring.

 If your organization has an account in Handshake, but you are not a contact in the system, follow the instructions here

After becoming a contact, you may post open positions and register for events.

Encourage Your Human Resources Department to Recruit at Messiah

Many HR departments are connected with college career centers as a way of recruiting for open positions.  There are many ways for them to recruit talented Messiah grads, and sometimes the best way to learn about them is from one of their own successful employees who happens to be a grad!


If you have questions about any of these opportunities or want to learn about additional ways to give back, please contact the Career & Professional Development Center at 717-691-6016 or email Abby Book at
