Our Alumni Association and Webster University are to a large extent relying on the help of volunteers. For a small organization like ours, volunteer work is the basis for many services that we offer. Thus, we need you! The rewards for the contribution to our community are the chance to meet new and interesting people and, of course, the gratitude of the Webster Community. There are many ways in which you can volunteer your time to the alumni association whilst having fun. Below you find an overview of some of the most important ones. If you are interested in joining us for any of the activities or support us at an event, please contact our Alumni Coordination at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Open Information Evenings
- Career Days
- Alumni Testimonial
- Alumni Events
- Champagne Welcome for New Graduates
Webster Vienna regularly hosts Open Information Evenings on campus for prospective students and their families. The Recruitment and Admissions Department invite alumni to attend Open Information Evenings in Vienna but also abroad to present their experience as a past student of Webster Vienna. These personal stories are an important part in the decision process of the applicants and help Webster to attract new students. As a speaker at Webster's recruiting events you can directly contribute to the success of your Alma Mater.
Alumni can also volunteer to help out current students by attending Webster Career Days. Students on the verge of completing their degrees are always grateful for any advice they can get from our experienced alumni. Valuable information about job interview techniques, CV’s and work experience can be handed over to students which will assist them in achieving their goals.
One of the first contact points with Webster is through advertisments or the internet. Since successful Webster Alumni are the best recommendation for the institution, Webster Vienna uses Alumni testimonials for its marketing campaign. Become a Webster Testimonial and help us to attract new students! You can either contribute your personal success story or Webster experience for our Alumni Testimonial or Alumni Career site online, or come for a professional photo shoot as basis for print advertising and other media.
At the Alumni Office, our resources are limited. Alumni volunteers help us to cater to the needs of our Alumni Community. Help out at an alumni event, meet and greet new members, volunteer your time at our next professional symposium, career evening or fun get-together. We are always looking for new ideas and locations to hold our events so contact us with your inspirations. These are just a few ways to volunteer your time so how about getting involved and help our Alumni Association grow and develop.
A very special Alumni event is the Champagne Welcome for our new graduates. Graduation is such an exciting time for everyone involved, from the graduating students and their supportive families to the staff and faculty from Webster it is a time of celebration. On the Friday before graduation, graduates pick up their gowns and regalia on campus. Members of the Vienna Chapter welcome the graduating students with a glass of champagne and introduce them to our activities and events. If you would like to be a part of this special day please let us know.
