Work Experience Profiles

ORU graduates are making a difference in every person's world.  We would like to collect profiles highlighting some of the many opportunities that ORU graduates have taken advantage of within the United States and abroad.


How It Works

    Toby (Class of '06)

    "I think the key to success in a field is to get involved in that field as soon as you know what you want to do. There's no need to wait till after college to start gaining experience. A college degree with experience already will get you a lot further in a perspective employer's eyes.

    If you want to be a lawyer, see about an internship or a job in a lawyer's office, even if all you do is file papers. The exposure and experience is priceless. Besides if you don't get that experience, you'll probably end up doing it after you graduate anyway."

  • Work experience profiles/testimonies will be collected from Alumni in written or video format.
  • The profiles will be based on a standard template of information (see document linked below).
  • Once we receive the written/video profiles, they will be posted on our student Work Experience Profiles/Testimonies web page under Job Search Tips as a resource to students.
  • Your submitted profiles will be posted under your graduating degree area and be used to help students find their career direction based on the major they selected.
  • This is designed to open the eyes of students to the many uses and career paths their degrees can lead them into.
