How to Post a Job to Alumni


Join Our Job Seekers Club! 

The Job Seekers Club is a six-week, cohort-based program where groups of 10 to 15 students attend a 90-minute online session once per week to discuss topics and build competencies with their peers related to job search techniques in a supportive and collaborative environment.
 
Format: 
  • You check in/out each week, where you share stories of career exploration, we reinforce the importance of effort over the outcome, and help you normalize your unique process.
  • These sessions reinforce self-awareness efforts and push you to increase your own career clarity and career-related skills.
  • Each cohort of the program will have unique needs and experiences but generally fall into these main themes:
    • Job search strategy
    • Interview preparation and performance
    • Understanding human resources and hiring processes
    • Networking
    • Resume and cover letters
    • Leveraging LinkedIn
    • Experience and skills (identifying, seeking, or compensating for lack thereof)
    • Career exploration and planning, challenges finding employment, and other topics as applicable.
