Stanford Career Connections
Career Connections offers a collection of online career resources from the Stanford Alumni Association and beyond. You can also connect with fellow alumni via the Alumni Directory, search job postings, and learn about career events in your area.
We offer career coaching through Stanford PlusFive for alumni who have graduated within the last five years. If you graduated over five years ago, go to the Stanford Alumni Association’s website for a list of additional career coaches.
Stanford hosts 11 career fairs during the academic year, covering a wide variety of industries.These fairs are an excellent way to connect with employers to learn about opportunities and what skills they are seeking.
