Alumni Connections

The Gwen M. Green Career and Internship Center staff appreciate the alumni who have shared the details of their career paths as a part of our Career Connection network. University of Rochester alumni are leaders in every field and this talented cross-section of alumni generously offer our students an insight into the daily responsibilities of their positions along with suggestions for those hoping to break into their fields. Many have also created internship opportunities or volunteered to have a student shadow them for a day. For current alumni-connected opportunities log into CareerLink.

Students, be sure to prepare a networking note and resume before contacting these professionals.

Alumni, connect with current students by sharing your story. Please send your bio to Kerrie Anne Merz.
