Alumni Support

Career Education for Life

Your career journey after graduation is important to us. Alumni have the opportunity to schedule a one-on-one career counseling appointment with a Career Education staff member. 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.

Did you know alumni can free access Handshake even without a current Allegheny email account?

  1. Visit the main Handshake page, enter your email address, then select Allegheny College on the following screen.
  2. Set up your account preferences and create and confirm your account.
  3. You will immediately get access to some features on Handshake but will not get access to school-specific content until an administrator in our office confirms your alumni status.
  4. Once approved by one of our administrators, you will receive full access to Allegheny’s Handshake information and be able to schedule an appointment.

Don’t hesitate! Make your appointment today!

Trouble getting access to Handshake? Please call (814) 332-2381.
