“Brandeis matters. Brandeis was the place, 3,000 miles away from home, where I spent the most formative years of my life, learning about independence, friendship, snow storms and love. Brandeis continues to provide alumni with resources, friendships and networking opportunities. It has influenced and guided my personal and professional endeavors. I volunteer to show my appreciation to a school that continues to support me, to give other alumni opportunities to connect with Brandeis and to share my passion for our alma mater.”

Over 20 Brandeis alumni and many other employer representatives were on campus on Tuesday, April 8 for the "Just In Time" Job and Internship Fair, sponsored by the career centers at Brandeis University.... This event was the largest recruiting event of the year, attracting over 330 students to network with 62 unique employers for open jobs and internships in a variety of industries. Employers conducted 184 interviews with attendees following the fair for immediate openings at their organizations. This was also a wonderful way for Brandeis graduates - especially so many Bold alumni - to make an impact on current students, including: Zeus Estrada '82; Laura Surman '87; Debra Rafson '00; Irina Litvak '06; Neal Ludevig '08; Caroline Shlager '09; Matthew Jennings '09; Andrew Franks '09; Alexander Chen '11; Russell Foxworthy '12; Josh Basseches '12; Rachel Silverman '13; Leslyn Hayes '13; Kamarra Freeman '13; David Kratzer '13; Sena Goka '13; Alexandre Sitbon, MA'08; Tracey Rose Friss, MA'10; and Han Wang, MA'12.
