Associate Director of Employer & Student Engagement

Emma O

I’m a proud 2005 alumnus of the University of Washington Geography department and now enjoy the opportunity to help support employers, and connect my fellow Huskies with meaningful job and internship opportunities at great organizations that span the Puget Sound, country and even the globe.

I oversee an Employer & Student Engagement team that manages contact with thousands of employers annually – virtually through our Handshake board, on-site with employers through our Bridge Mentorship and Site Visit programs, or on-campus through our On-Campus Interview, InfoSession and Career Fair opportunities.  How can we help you make your next great hire?
