Alumni Connections bring alums and students together for career conversations that are authentic and personal — which is especially important now more than ever. We’ve hosted virtual sessions for a while now, facilitating student conversations with LSA alums across the continental US and the broader world in destinations like L.A., London, and Madrid. The value of virtual Alumni Connections is that you can log in from wherever you’re based.
These sessions are designed to give students another avenue to explore their career interests and get first-hand knowledge directly from professionals in the working world. The conversations typically circulate around these themes:
How did your liberal arts degree support your career growth?
What opportunities did you leverage during your time as an LSA student or early on in your career that made a long-term impact?
What are all the career possibilities out there for my major? How did you pivot into different roles and industries?
How do I break into a specific industry, or learn how to make connections with professionals in that field?
How do I find and secure real career opportunities?
Find out below who we’ve lined up for the last two Alumni Connections of the school year and RSVP below in the LSA Opportunity Network to receive an email with details on how to join the conversation virtually.
