Looking to take the next step in your career? The Alumni Career Team is partnering with our regional clubs and affiliate groups to host career events across the country.

Upcoming Events

The Alumni Career Program is partnering with our clubs to offer Alumni Career Office Hours with a Career Coach. These informal conversations will give alumni the opportunities to ask and get answers to some of your most pressing career questions while meeting fellow alumni. Need advice on a career change? Not sure how to ask for a raise? Concerned about negotiating salary on an offer? Ask your career question in an informal, safe environment and get the help you need or simply join to meet other alumni in a casual career-focused setting.

While each session is sponsored by a club, all office hour events are open to all alumni.
