Undergraduate College Recruiting – When, Why, and How Companies Recruit on Campus


Veterans - raise your hand if you plan to target large corporations as part of your post-graduation job hunt. Makes sense – many large companies have veteran recruiting programs and have made commitments to hire those who have served. However, counting on corporate good will and intention is not enough to stack the deck in your favor when it comes time to find a job before graduation.

There are many benefits to being a Student Veteran, and even more by being an active member of an SVA Chapter. My personal top five reasons to being an active chapter member are:

A Call to Service: How Serving Others Improves Our Community and Ourselves

In May two interviews were given that seemed to offer conflicting views of how we can change the world.  Physicist Carlo Rovelli explained that we can only perceive the existence of a particle in a particular form when it interacts with something.  Rovelli theorized that we and our communities only exist as a collection of interactions with others and that those interactions can be collaborative or combative.  He suggested that the collaborative interactions will help us live a better reality.  That same week, Algerian musician Souad Massi said that when she wrote her first song as a teenager, “I used to be a dreamer — I wanted to change the world.” However, Massi said that now she believes we have to work on what is not good in ourselves before we can help others and go about the difficult business of trying to change the world.  How can we connect these two contradicting realities: a) that we only exist once we interact with others, and b) that we should work on ourselves before we help others?
