Recent Alumni

Your connection to the University of Arizona does not end when you graduate, and we are here to support you as you navigate and mange your career. Our website is arranged to get you the information that you need, when you need it!

When you click on the items in the drop-down menu for “Students and Alumni,” you will see that there are three types of “communities” (or pages):

  1. Programs & Resources – These communities support you as you navigate your career post graduation. Explore ways you can build skills and gain experience, including Continuing and Professional Education, Experiential LearningResearchTransferable Skill building, Functional Skill building, and Internships.
  2. Career Clusters – These 10 clusters group related types of work. They give you an easy way to explore different kinds of jobs and internships within one broad category. Each has a dedicated community that you can explore, including recommended Internships and Jobs at organizations that are currently hiring.
  3. Identifies & Affinities – We know that our identities shape how we experience the workplace. In these communities, we provide advice tailored for varying identities and affinity groups.

Each community provides different types of content, including:

  • Helpful narrative information and videos
  • Links to resources, including examples and templates, helpful hints, and more
  • Alumni connections, featuring individuals open to connecting with current students or fellow alumni to network and have career conversations
  • Featured classes and experiences to help you build skills

We encourage you to sign up to “Follow” communities of interest to receive alerts when new content is added, and to explore the events visible on the home page. Bear Down!
