You may be graduating, you may be applying to graduate school, you may be uncertain about what kind of work you’re truly passionate about and we’re all dealing with the uncertainty of a global pandemic. We curated four special Alumni Career Chats and two special Career Education Workshops to help you.
Register under Program Registration.
U of T alumni understand that career thinking and job searching is challenging, messy, and time-consuming, and they are ready to chat about it with you!
Alumni Career Chats are informal, small-group, discussion-based sessions. Current students and/or recent graduates can join an alumnus to hear their career story, unpack and reflect on experiences and challenges, and ask questions about career exploration and planning. We use a flexible structure where participants lead the conversation with their questions.
Some of the things U of T alumni will talk about:
- how to transition from university life to a career
- how to bring your passion (e.g. sustainability and social impact) into the workplace
- alternative careers in various fields
- working abroad
Program EligibilityOpen to all current students and recent alumni (up to 2 years after graduation)
How The Program Works
Join an alumnus from U of T for an informal conversation. In this small group, you will be able to ask questions and hear career insights.
Alumni Career Chats take place throughout the year.

Thank you so much for hosting today's networking session. It was one of the best presentations and networking sessions that I've attended thus far at U of T. I appreciate you giving time to students to ask questions and introduce ourselves to the speaker.
