A large Network
Is there a more readily available network of professional contacts out there than your alumni association? If you need to find an opening at a new job, or are curious if an organization is a good fit for you, using your online alumni directory is a great way to connect with people who could be great resources for informational interviews or could even get you in the door to new career opportunities.
At Concordia, our career services don't end once you turn your tassel. We want to help our graduates by leading them to relevant job postings, reviewing their resumes, providing them with networking events and connecting them with mentors and potential employers. Make sure to check out our Vocation & Professional Development website for career advising, posted internships, upcoming career fairs, professional mentoring opportunities, job and industry connections and personal branding advice.
Don't forget to seek out lifelong learning lectures and events online. Be sure to look into your campus library access and use your alumni discount when applicable: sporting events, theatre performances, etc.
