Welcome Alumni

As alumni of Wesleyan University, the Gordon Career Center welcomes you to continue your relationship with Wes. The GCC offers continued advising to alumni as you move through your lives and careers. We also offer opportunities for alumni to engage with students in a number of ways through participation in various virtual and on-campus programming. Through our on-campus recruiting program, alumni can post jobs and internships, present information sessions and coffee chats, and support Wesleyan students with resume reviews and interview preparation.

It is our goal to help students and alumni alike to translate their Wesleyan education into a lifetime of meaningful work. We know there is simply no stopping a Wesleyan student and alumnus/ae when they work together. Wesleyan alumni are uniquely qualified to support the next generation of Wesleyan alumni, and we want to facilitate those connections to help all of you find success. We hope you’ll consider connecting with us and helping current and future Cardinals find their wings in the post-Wesleyan world!

This page serves as an overview for ways to engage with the center, whether you need career advising or are looking to engage with students. See below to find more information about our advising opportunities, volunteer programs, job posting process, and more resources tailored to the post-undergraduate career search.
