Career Services for Alumni

Thinking about a career transition? Lifelong career development opportunities to advance or alter your path are offered from the Career Services team. We are always eager to help former students achieve their goals.

Services and opportunities include:

Career development and counseling appointments: If you need additional career guidance post-graduation, our career services team is available for one-on-one appointments.

Access to Handshake, our online job portal: This free online career management resource allows you to look for and/or add job postings of interest to Brown School students and alumni. More information on how to access Handshake is below.

Alumni Academy: Help current Brown students chart their ongoing career paths, identify their skills and learn how to network. When you commit to volunteering two hours a month with Career Services, you will receive opportunities to examine your own career, complete valuable self-assessments and trainings, and network with other alums in the area. Please contact to join the Alumni Academy or learn more at one of our training sessions.

Important Note: On August 1, 2022, Handshake replaced Symplicity as the Brown School’s career management platform. Students will have access to Symplicity until the end of December 2022. Additionally, the Office of Field Education will still use Symplicity until the end of Fall 2022 for practicum placement reporting and approvals. Field Education will then join Career Services on Handshake in Spring 2023!

If you have questions about Handshake or any of our services, please contact us.
