Give a talk at a school

Wouldn’t you have liked it if when you were at school,  someone with the experience that you now have would have come and told you all about their lives and how their paths led them to where they are now? We invite alumni to return to school – to carry out lessons or talks and share their experience. The visit would bring practical knowledge and experience from various fields of life, contributing to a more diverse education for students. These talks can be useful both for the students and the teachers to a get a glimpse at a particular industry and current trends.

To express your interest please contact Shoshana

ORT Alumni Network is planning to organise series of networking events. These events will be taking place in different cities within our international network.

We would like to invite alumni to present their success stories or an interesting lecture (TED talk style) for this event.

Please get in touch with your ideas. 

Offer an internship at your company to one of the students

Are you an employer or do you know of a position available at the company you work at? Have you considered offering an internship experience to one of the ORT students? In larger companies internship programmes are quite common. We would really appreciate if you could let us know of such positions and we would gladly distribute the information to our schools, to give a chance to fellow ORT students to apply.

With STEM focus across the network, our students are tech savvy and are up to date with the latest innovations. Experience in a real workplace will give students a chance to learn new skills and professional code of conduct. However, bringing a highly motivated and enthusiastic worker who will not only help your team but also boost morale and productivity, will also benefit your workplace.

If you know of any available internship programmes, please get in touch with Shoshana
