Move your career forward.

Each summer, the Young Alumni Career Development Series provides expert guidance, professional wisdom, and insider knowledge on topics such as fearlessly negotiating your salary, developing your leadership skills, and acing your next interview—as well as providing a live résumé review. This year we are encouraging you to expand your skills in three thematic areas: Grow. Network. Pivot.

With 12 online events, Career Advancement and Alumni Career Programs will help guide you through some of the common obstacles and challenges you might face early in your career—useful advice in any economic climate, whether you end up in an office or working remotely.

See below for a full list of offerings.
