You already share a history with our alumni. That history forms a connection that you won’t find anywhere else. We’re here to coordinate and network for you, so don’t miss out on these opportunities. It’s never been easier to build life-changing relationships.
The Alumni Career Network provides Adelphi University alumni with the opportunity to continue their connection to Adelphi. The network allows participants to keep in touch with former professors and friends while helping current students prepare for the future. There are many ways to connect—here are a few:
Shadowing (or Externships)
Spending a day with someone on the job can teach a student a great deal about an occupation or industry which helps inspire and clarify career goals.
Internships are a wonderful way to introduce potential careers while also building résumés. Alumni can become an important part of a student’s future career success by offering internship opportunities.
Alumni can become an important part of a student’s learning experience by creating an ongoing mentoring relationship or, if time is more limited, by being available for a single informational interview in person or by phone.
Alumni can interview and directly recruit Adelphi seniors and graduate students at on- and off-campus recruitment events.
Alumni sometimes visit classes, clubs or career events to make presentations about their careers.
Informational interviews serve as an opportunity to pair alumni with interested students to discuss their industry, job requirements and advice for starting a career.
Networking plays a major role in filling the vast majority of jobs. Alumni can help us teach students networking skills and the importance of developing professional contacts.
