Career Education for Life

Your career journey after graduation is important to us. Alumni have the opportunity to schedule a one-on-one phone or in-person career counseling appointment with a Career Education staff member at any time of the year at any point in their life. The following 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.

Gator Connect is live!

Gator Connect is an online alumni networking community and is the place for alumni and student engagement. Whether you’re looking for a job, trying to connect with your first-year roommate, or you want to become involved at the College, think of Gator Connect as a launchpad to get you started.

As alumni, you can request an account here.

Gator Connect includes the same features you appreciated in GatorLocator while also providing new elements and functionality to enhance your connections with fellow alumni and Allegheny.

One of those new features is the inclusion of what was formerly known as the ACCEL Job Database. The “Job & Internship Search” tab in Gator Connect is exclusively for Alleghenians and is the go-to place for Gators searching for a job or looking to fill an opening at their place of business. Career Education manages this database to connect students and alumni to job opportunities and job seekers. With your help, Allegheny can have the largest and most dynamic career network of any small liberal arts college in the country.

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.

If you have questions or concerns regarding job posts or opportunities, please call us at 814-332-2381.

Become a VISA (Volunteers in Support of Allegheny)

All Allegheny alumni are invited to become members of VISA, an organization vital to Allegheny’s continued tradition of excellence! VISA is a collaborative alumni volunteer program designed to harness enthusiasm about Allegheny in order to meet student and college goals.

Personal connections make a tremendous difference to current and prospective students. Allegheny’s alumni are the College’s greatest asset in these endeavors. Alumni are the tangible outcomes of an Allegheny education, your successes underscore the success of our programs and your collective voices have tremendous potential to help the College and our students succeed.

With your help, we will continue the tradition of reaching out to current and prospective students, enriching the quantity and quality of Allegheny’s network.

Alumni can learn more about and become part of VISA by logging into their account in Gator Connect. Within Gator Connect you can manage your volunteer interests on your Profile page under the Engagement Tab. You will also see a list of your current and past volunteer role. Keeping your interests up to date allows Alumni Affairs to match you with the type of volunteer experiences you find most meaningful.
