Connect students with your Opportunties!

The 2021 job market is anything but predictable. Internships rescinded, hiring freezes, and lack of job opportunities are the reality for many of our students and recent grads.

Opportunites in SAM is your chance to help Stanford students through this uncertain time while delivering against business objectives.

How can you provide opportunities to current students?

The new Opportunities function in our Stanford Alumni Mentoring platform is an easy way to share your relevant projects, internships, and job opportunities with students. The platform is easy to use, and provides project templates and manages interactions with students all within the SAM platform.

To get started: create your profile on the SAM platform using your Stanford alumni email address, then use these step-by-step instructions to complete your project, job, or internship opportunity.

We are incredibly grateful for alumni support of Stanford students in this trying time. We hope this platform will provide you the necessary tools to not only get your project completed, but help build the skills and confidence for Stanford students.

If you have any questions about the SAM platform, please email
