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.

If you would like to discuss any career related matters with one of our career advisors, you can schedule an appointment 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.  Alumni may schedule up to three appointments per year with a Penn Career Services advisor.  Alumni who feel they may need additional support are welcome to review this list of External Career Coaches as an additional resource.
