A benefit of being an alumna is continued access to Career Education resources. Dedicated Alumnae Career Advisors and Career Community Advisors are here to help you navigate your career journey, make meaningful connections, overcome obstacles, and celebrate success at every stage.
We offer one-on-one advising, resume and cover letter reviews, interview practice, professional development webinars, and advice on new trends that will impact your job search process. Our experienced staff can work with you to address whatever you are facing, including making a career pivot/change, advancing in your current career field, re-entering the workforce after time away, or finding an “encore career” after retirement.
