As an alumnus/a, the Office of Career Education is here to assist you with your career development journey. The suggested tools and resources are designed with the intention of addressing the needs of alumni. The ultimate goal of our staff is to assist Allegheny graduates with attaining meaningful opportunities throughout their professional career.
A NEW online community, Gator Connect, is on the way…
We’re creating a new and improved online community for Alleghenians. The new site, called Gator Connect, will be live soon. In the meantime, if you need help locating a classmate, please click here or call (814) 332-5384 to contact the Alumni Office.
If you currently receive email from Allegheny, you will be sent a message when Gator Connect is live. (If you don’t currently receive email from Allegheny, please click here to update your email address.)
Gator Connect will include the same features you appreciated in GatorLocator while also providing new elements and functionality to enhance your connections with fellow alumni and Allegheny.
An important part of this new community is the addition of what was formerly known as the ACCEL Job Database to Gator Connect. Career Education manages this very useful resource to connect students and alumni to job opportunities and job seekers. By connecting the job database to a growing and improving online community, we hope to make both resources more valuable for everyone to use.
If you are searching for an opportunity, please contact us at 814-332-2381 to have your Gator Connect account activated.
If you would like to submit an opportunity to the database to recruit current Allegheny students or alumni, please complete the Hire A Gator form.
Alumni Career Days
Your career journey after graduation is important to us. Alumni Career Days is designed to support you in your ongoing career development. Alumni have the opportunity to schedule one-on-one career counseling appointments with a Career Education staff member. Topics discussed during an appointment cover one of three areas: resume and cover letter review, general career counseling session, or LinkedIn profile review.
LinkedIn is a valuable tool to use for personal branding, job exploration, and developing your professional network. Our LinkedIn page describes in detail how to effectively search, connect, and network with fellow Gators.
Along with LinkedIn, visit our resource page for more information about self-assessments, job search tools, career blogs, and professional document guides.
