Many of our graduates continuously give to the program by volunteering their time to support a variety of ongoing initiatives. We invite all of our alumni to consider speaking in our classes, advising our students on career options, volunteering at parent and recruiting events, and sharing valuable internship and job postings.
Speak at Tech
Alumni possessing expertise in fields related to INTA faculty research topics or course offerings are welcome to contact our faculty members or our academic advisor to inquire about possible speaking opportunities. Please note that faculty members often create their syllabi several months in advance of the semesters their courses are offered, so approaching them mid-semester about speaking engagements would most likely not result in an invitation for that semester.
Alumni are also often invited to speak at events hosted by INTA student groups. These events, held in the fall and spring semesters, are usually informal meetings with small groups of students. The speakers usually discuss their recent INTA-related research or work experiences and often provide career advice to students attempting to enter a field similar to the speaker’s.
Although we cannot accommodate all requests for speaking engagements at Tech, the School is interested in hearing from alumni who are interested in speaking to INTA students on a volunteer basis. Interested alumni should contact Tony Gallego, Program Coordinator, via email and include a resume, a listing of topics for which the speaker has expertise, and the size audience to which the speaker feels comfortable presenting.
Staff an Event
INTA Alumni are not only welcome to all events listed on our events page, but also welcome to volunteer at these events to help with signing in guests, welcoming parents, speaking to new students, and offering assistance to event coordinators. To volunteer for an event, please contact the event sponsor listed on the event page.
Be a Career Guide
The career search can be an intimidating process for INTA students because of the numerous career paths available to our students. We often invite alumni to join us for career panels, career lunches, resumes reviews, and career fairs. At these events, alumni talk about their career fields, describe how they broke into this field, and make suggestions about where to look for jobs in this field. Alumni also share suggestions about courses and internships students should pursue now to make them more attractive to employers during the job search. Alumni able to discuss their careers fields in significant depth and who are interested in speaking with INTA students should contact Tony Gallego, Program Coordinator.
Offer an Internship
INTA students are expected to complete two internships while in the program. The School is constantly searching for meaningful internship experiences for our students and invites our alumni to share information about internships with their companies or organizations. Please email internship information to Stephanie Jackson, INTA Academic Advisor. In your email, please include a description of the internship and the contact name for the internship coordinator. Internships will be distributed to all Nunn School students and added to the The Ivan internship database.
