Network with Alumni

Your connection to our office didn’t end with graduation. The W&L Career and Professional Development Office can help you navigate your career path through your first job transition and beyond. Explore our alumni career resources below, or contact us at careers@wlu.edu to connect with a career advisor.

Tap into the power and collective knowledge of the W&L alumni network through career and networking events. We know our alumni are always looking for ways to connect with fellow Generals to network, learn, share ideas and gain experience. Learn how to initiate a local networking gathering in your area, plan chapter-wide career and networking events, or participate in university-wide programs and events below.

Local Networking Gatherings

Networking gatherings can focus on an industry, profession or other affinity or interest group and can range from a casual coffee meet-up to a more structured panel format. Submit the initiation form to indicate your interest in holding a gathering in your area.

Chapter-Wide Events

The Career and Professional Development Office works closely with alumni chapters to plan and prepare for chapter-wide career and networking events throughout the year. Our team will work with you to select the best event format for your chapter, target audience and goals, as well as identify fellow alumni, W&L faculty or staff, or other well-known thought leaders to participate in the event.

University-Wide Events

W&L hosts several industry-specific and interdisciplinary events and programs throughout the year, which both serve as educational experiences for current students and bring alumni together to network and share best practices and industry trends.
