Campus757 is a program of the Hampton Roads Workforce Council.

Campus757 is the first to develop a centralized hub connecting students with employers and tastemakers throughout the region.

We inform and guide students with programs and resources to launch their careers, establish a home base in Hampton Roads and leave a lasting impact in the community. We exist to expand young professionals’ outlook on the 757 and help them make connections to local businesses in pursuit of their dream career in greater Hampton Roads.

Our mission is to work harmoniously with local universities and corporations to retain and develop young professionals in the Hampton Roads region. We are building a community for students to excel professionally post-graduation by providing access to career resources, internships and job positions across industry sectors. We enlighten students with the region’s diverse social happenings, so they feel connected to the community and compelled to continue writing their story in Hampton Roads.

Hi! I’m Maegan, the Campus757 Program Manager at the Hampton Roads Workforce Council. I was challenged with launching this initiative from concept to reality. With a background in event planning and project management combined with a passion for building our next generation of talent, I knew this was the career adventure I had been hoping for.  A true lover of this region, I believe that in the 757, you really can be yourself – while continuing to grow and achieve. Professionally and personally, your place is here!

Greetings, and thank you for visiting Campus757. I’m Whitney, the Sr. Director of Talent for the Hampton Roads Workforce Council. I’m pleased to say that Campus757 was the first true talent initiative launched in this new division of the Council. Prior to my tenure here, I was a longtime HRWC Board member while creating jobs for people with disabilities at VersAbility Resources in Hampton. The 757 has so many assets, both natural and people-driven, and we hope to be the conduit for college students and anyone else to soak them all in for many years to come.
