Career Connections

career connections student with alumni

The Career Connections program is designed to match first and second-year undergraduate students with alumni for the purpose of exploring career options. The "connection" may be in the form of a shadowing experience or an individual meeting for an inside look at careers or industries through informational interviewing, networking and observation. The Career Connections experience takes place during the week of spring break. Requirements: attend an information session (held in January) submit online registration form (mid-January) that will include write a brief statement about your goals for the future and your current resume.

Alumni and students are identified and matched based on background, interests, location and availability. We know that exploring career options raises a lot of questions. The goal of Career Connections is to give you a learning opportunity outside the classroom. The benefits are:

  • Assistance from the Post-Graduate Planning and Experiential Education and the Alumni Association to match you up with your requested contact
  • Exposure to career opportunities relating to academic majors at a location of your choosing
  • Alumni interaction and guidance in careers, course of study and campus/professional organizations
