Associate Director of Employer & Student Engagement
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?
Assistant Director of Employer & Student Engagement
Jessie is on maternity leave and will be returning on September 1. Questions regarding recruitment, Industry Mentorship Programs, site visits, and other engagement opportunties can be directed to Emma O’Neill-Myers (email@example.com).
As a member of the Employer & Student Engagement team, I facilitate connections between students and employers though our Industry Mentorship Programs, company site visits, panels, and other programming. I help students explore the world of work, make connections, and understand how non-linear career pathways can develop.
I’m originally from Toronto, Canada, and made my way across the continent to attend Washington State University. While earning a degree in Psychology, I competed for Cougar swimming in breaststroke and sprint freestyle. Following graduation I worked in recruiting, before making the transition to higher education. Outside of work I enjoy camping, live music, and traveling.
Handshake Experience Manager
I support students, alumni, and employer partners by managing the online recruitment database serving UW Seattle and UW Bothell: Handshake. Whether you’re a student looking for a relevant career opportunity, an employer looking to build brand awareness on campus, or a UW advisor looking to assist students in their career and internship goals, I can help!
I am a graduate of Gonzaga University’s School of Business but am excited to be a Husky as well. After a variety of professional experiences, I’m happy to be at UW in the Career and Internship Center. In my free time, I enjoy running, hiking, and traveling.
Employer Relations Manager
In my role as the Employer Relations Manager, I work to create unique and dynamic experiences that bring employers on campus to connect them with our vibrant student base. In cultivating those relationships, I also oversee the Husky Signature Employer Program, highlighting our industry partners – if you’d like to join, I can help!
I have been a Husky employee since 2016 but attended undergrad at Seattle University. Growing up in Seattle, I love experiencing everything PNW – playing at the beach with my dog, camping at Mount Rainier, and rooting for the Seahawks.
As the Internship Success Manager, I am excited to help students explore, find, and acquire high-quality internship experiences. I mainly work with UW staff, campus advisers, and employers to develop programs and processes that ensure students can access and thrive in these meaningful outside-the-classroom opportunities.
I grew up in San Jose, CA and received my Bachelor’s in Political Science and Economics from the University of California, Santa Barbara. My first job after college was in grassroots political activism in the Washington D.C. area. In that position, I worked with college student volunteers and found that higher education and student affairs was a great fit for my career interests. I came to UW for my Master’s degree in 2015, and prior to this role I have worked with student leadership programming and undergraduate research at the UW.
Outside of work, you can probably find me cooking up a new recipe, playing ultimate Frisbee, or hiking and camping.
