Expand your career horizons with the new Alumni Career Services program. Whether your post-grad job hunt has just begun or you’re switching careers, take advantage of alumni-to-alumni mentorship opportunities, professional development grants and career-focused events.
Professional Development Grants
Apply for an alumni-exclusive Professional Development Grant and and get up to 75% of the registration fee covered (to a maximum dollar value of $1000) on one of the many continuing education courses, programs and events offered at UAlberta. Applications accepted monthly.
Alumni in the early stages of their careers are matched with alumni career mentors to help them develop business and interpersonal skills that will help advance their careers. The Alumni-to-Alumni Career Mentoring Program takes place over eight months, from April to the end of November. Application deadline for mentees is January 30, 2020.
UAlberta Switchboard is a new online tool that connects you to your UAlberta community — including alumni, students, faculty and staff. Ask for career advice, offer your expertise, post or discover a job. Switchboard is full of possibilities, and it’s free and easy to use.
