Hello, welcome to the Center of Career and Civic Engagement. I am Tiffany Alexander, the Associate Director of Employer Engagement and Internships. I oversee the internship program at the university. I plan and coordinate four career fairs throughout the academic school year. To help students sharpen their interviewing skills, I plan a mock interview day with employers. In addition, I help students with their career and professional development by providing career coaching to students and helping them with their resumes and cover letters.
Volunteer and Community Service is where it's at at Winthrop. Some of the things that we do in our office is SOAR. It's a service organization that I know you'd love to join. We help fulfill the needs in the community. Another one is Alternative Spring Break, where we serve in another state. Also, you may want to attend our Social Impact Expo, which is our volunteer fair, where we have over 57 nonprofit organizations that you can connect to. Or how about MLK Day, where we have over 250 students serve. That's just a few things. Come by and see me in my office. Hope to see you in the fall.
We would love to meet you all at least once during your time at Winthrop. Our office is appointment based, so go to the Winthrop website, search for Career and Civic Engagement, and then scroll down until you see a gray Book Now button. Also follow our Instagram page, where we post various opportunities, events and tips. Can't wait to see you all around campus. Go Eagles!
