Graduates of Clarkson work in a variety of industries and organizations, as well as have attended numerous graduate programs. The Alumni Group offers you an easy introduction to Clarkson alumni and allows you to seek guidance, advice, and feedback in an open and confidential manner. Most alumni are willing to share their time, knowledge and assistance. In order to maximize contacts and to participate in the Alumni Group, students can reference the user guide below with tips on how to initiate contact once their request to join this group in LinkedIn has been received.

Would you like to benefit from the expertise of Clarkson alumni when it comes to having your resume reviewed, doing a practice interview via Skype, or other career specific tasks? The Career Center is working on establishing a database of Alumni Career Advisors who can help you with specific requests. The Career Center will match you with the alumnus most likely to be of assistance and coordinate that initial contact. Please visit the Career Center for more information.
