  • To access the job board, log in to myBrown. Your job board link will be under "Links and Resources."

Resume writing and interviewing

  • Recent grads (three years out or less) can visit the Center for Career Exploration to have their resumes reviewed.
  • A great resource for executives is The Ladders, a website that offers free basic membership and loads of advice on job searching and resume-building.
  • If you would like someone to take an in-depth look at your resume and career plan, consider using the Brown alumni Executive/Career Coaches.


BRUnet, which served both students and alumni, has been replaced by BrownConnect (see below).

  • Attend an alumni event.
  • Check out BrownConnect.
    • For alumni: BrownConnect now allows all alumni to search for, email, and favorite fellow alumni in any profession. Learn more.
    • For students: BrownConnect centralizes summer internship listings, funding sources, and alumni profiles. All alumni whom Brown has employment information for are searchable in BrownConnect, unless they have opted out. Students can type in one term—such as “museum”—and find all alumni, internships, and funding sources related to that term.


...and get inspired to veer off onto your own path.

The BAA offers the following resources:


It’s true that the Center for Career Exploration is primarily a resource for current Brown students and very recent grads (within the last three years). However, the Office of Alumni Relations has a roster of resources designed to aid alumni at all stages of their careers.
