Students seeking advice may explore a number of online resources, featuring Smeal alumni. From the college’s exclusive online portal for alumni advice to the University’s online alumni directory, students are sure to find the career advice that they need.
Through SmealConnect, students not only apply for internships and co-op positions, but students have the opportunity to interact with alumni. Smeal alumni volunteer to share their knowledge with those who may be seeking the same degree or working in their field of interest. Alumni provide advice to current Smeal students who may have questions about career decisions and other business topics. The “Get/Give Advice” feature will launch to students beginning in Fall 2013. Learn more about SmealConnect for undergraduates on the Undergraduate Student Exchange.
Candid Career is an online resource for students and alumni to discover and explore various career options. Through short video interviews, students can hear directly from real professionals, including Smeal alumni, working in a variety of industries. Alumni offer unique insights and insider perspectives on what it’s like to work in their field and what students need to do to prepare for a particular career path.
