Career development and management is a lifelong process which continues beyond graduation from Columbia. As a result, The Center for Career Education's Alumni Career Development Department offers various types of career assistance to support alumni as they navigate and plan careers throughout their lives. Through individual career counseling, career development programs and workshops, and career information and resources, the Alumni Career Development team helps alumni with career transitions, self-assessment, job search skills and tools, and career planning. Additional resources available to alumni include job postings through LionSHARE, resume and interview assistance, Career Counseling Services and Career Development Programs, career fairs, networking opportunities, and access to the Career Resource Center.
In addition, The Center for Career Education encourages alumni to support developing educational programs and employment opportunities for students and other alumni. Alumni are encouraged to share their career stories, volunteer as panelists, participate in networking events, include a profile on Columbia Career Connections, post job and internship opportunities, provide shadowing and other experiential experiences, and serve as a Columbia champion at their organization.
