The Career Center at Allegheny College is a hub for connectivity and engagement. We welcome students to meet with a career coach and tap into the community-wide career ecosystem at Allegheny College.

Browse and apply for a variety of internships and jobs through Handshake. Filter your search for “ac connection” to see opportunities known to be directly supported by alumni. Explore other features, including the employer directory, the events calendar, and career center resources.

Students and alumni can log in from the Allegheny College page and enter an Allegheny username and password. If needed, Alumni can establish new accounts with a preferred email address.

Engage with alumni and non-alumni professionals locally and globally through Gator2Gator! As a student, you have access to a powerful online and in-person network of diverse Allegheny community members that can help you build connections, find your next job, and share their expertise.

Internship Funding
The Center for Career and Professional Development is fortunate to manage an Internship Funding Program made possible by the generosity of many alumni and friends. A series of funds were established that collectively support many student internships on an annual basis. The act of funding student interns is centered on matching donor intentions with student needs.
