Connecting You with Talent to Meet Your Needs

A St. Thomas education is rooted in the Liberal Arts, meaning that our students develop a breadth of skills with a depth of knowledge in their specific field of study. Additionally, St. Thomas is the only academic institution in Minnesota to be designated a “Changemaker Campus,” meaning social innovation, entrepreneurship and caring for the common good are built into everything we do.

Our goal is to help you find the talent you need to meet your early career and internship opportunities. Whether you represent a small business or large corporation, a nonprofit organization or government agency, we are here to help you connect with Tommie talent.

Consult with staff to develop a tailored outreach and pipeline development strategy. Utilize our many services and resources. Take advantage of tools such as Handshake and St. Thomas Connect to increase your visibility with students and alumni.

Career treks are exploration experiences that bring groups of 15-20 students to meet with potential employers to gain insights into their operations, company culture and career opportunities. These treks offer students the opportunity to explore different industries, network with professionals, and learn about potential career paths. Career treks are a valuable part of the career development process and can be especially helpful for students in the exploration and preparation stages of their career journey.
