Hear the real stories behind the successes and failures of U of T alumni as they navigate their careers.
Alumni Career Chats are informal, small-group online sessions where students and recent grads can ask U of T alumni questions and hear unique, personal stories from working professionals. Each session features one alumni guest who will share their career story.
Career Exploration staff will help guide the discussion, but your participation is an integral part of Alumni Career Chats. We invite you to be curious and engage in the conversation!
Our goal is to showcase a diverse selection of alumni and we hope all U of T students can see themselves represented.
Open 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 can ask questions and hear career insights.
Alumni Career Chats take place throughout the year. Participate in our upcoming series:

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.
