For Employers

Hope College provides an intimate, applied learning community that shapes student engagement, fostering vocational discernment and a desire to be “engaged.”

Feedback from employers indicates that our students are well-prepared academically, are inclined to engage their organizations intentionally and are able to demonstrate needed communication, teamwork, leadership and analytical abilities. Hope’s small size and intimate community allow us to get to know our students on a personal level and help us connect them to you. We’ve developed a variety of opportunities for you to engage with our students and build strong talent pipelines. We would love to work with you on the best approach for your firm.
