Alumni Career Services
With a focus on connecting alumni to alumni, the Drexel Alumni Career Services program helps you reach your professional goals. Drexel Alumni, the Steinbright Career Development Center and some of Drexel’s Colleges and Schools offer extensive career service programming and resources.
Drexel Alumni Seminars, Workshops and Networking Events
Offered both in person and online, these programs cover a wide range of career-development topics and feature alumni and faculty speakers who are experts in their field. Topics are also often focused on a certain industry or type of career, allowing you to meet and establish relationships with fellow alumni that could lead you to that next career step.
Visit the Events Calendar for a complete schedule of alumni events in and around your area.
These volunteer-led groups, which are formed around particular industries or professions, allow alumni with shared interests to meet one another, make valuable connections and stay up-to-date on the latest news and trends in a particular field.
Current groups include the Drexel University Architecture Alumni Association, the Drexel Hospitality Affinity Group, the Drexel Marketing Affinity Group, the Real Estate Alumni Network.
New groups focused on interior design, public sector and academia are now forming.
