Alumni Career Services

The Drexel University Alumni Association and the Steinbright Career Development Center offer a full-range of workshops, seminars, career counseling and online resources to help you reach your professional goals and manage your career.

The Alumni Association sponsors career development seminars, in-person and online, throughout the year in which alumni volunteers deliver programs on a variety of topics, such as job search, personal branding, leadership, entrepreneurship, and career paths in specific industries. Sometimes, these speakers are employed in fields such as human resources, executive search, or career counseling while other speakers simply have a particular passion for or rich experiences to share that relate to these topics. The program description contains a recommendation on the career stage(s) for which the program would be most relevant, so you can decide if it is the right fit for your needs and interests. But, all alumni are always welcome at any career development seminar.

Monthly Virtual Networking Hours

Each month, the Alumni Association will offer 1 hour-long online speed-networking style events that will allow alumni to build their networks by connecting with fellow graduates who have similar interests.

These virtual networking hours will be hosted by Brazen. Dates will be announced as they are confirmed.
