Alumni Advising and Career Support

Individual career counseling appointments are provided to alumni up to one year after graduation. Beyond that year, we can direct you to a number of career coaches, many of whom are also Ducks. In addition, the following is a list of resources that may help you explore industries, organizations, and career opportunities. Fellow alumni can be a valuable source of information, insight, and advice as you engage in the process of career reflection and self-evaluation.
