Alumni

Information for Alumni

Career Services remain available to Penn alumni served by our office even after you graduate! We have a variety of career related digital resources available for alumni which you can explore on this page, including our Handshake job board which lists thousands of positions posted for Penn alumni each year.  Note that alumni of online-only programs should contact their program for services.

Alumni may schedule up to three appointments per 12-month period with a career advisor through Handshake or by calling our office at 215-898-7531. Career Services advisors can discuss a range of topics with you from helping you to think through and clarify your career goals, to perfecting your resume or interviewing skills, to applying to graduate or professional school.  (Note that alumni within one year of graduation who may need additional career support are not subject to the three appointment limit.) See the list of Career Advising teams to find your appropriate advisor. Alumni who feel they may need additional support are welcome to review this list of External Career Coaches as an additional resource.
