Lehigh Connects new Feature - Projects

The Lehigh Connects alumni and student networking community has a new feature, Projects, designed to help current Lehigh students build experience by completing real-world, experiential projects that can also benefit alumni businesses. 

Projects on Lehigh Connects are fueled by individuals like you—fellow alumni, faculty, parents, or university partners, who can sponsor a paid or unpaid project for a student to complete remotely. It takes only minutes to post project details and descriptions that are short-term (20-60 hours) and able to be completed virtually. Students will be able to browse and apply to projects that connect to their career interests and academic programs. The alumni project sponsor will also have complete control over the project description, review all applications and make hiring decisions. Students who are selected for project work are expected to meet project expectations and regularly communicate with their sponsor. And Lehigh Connects helps you manage this process, every step of the way.
