Seniors & Recent Grads

Your time as a student has lasted just a few years, but you’ll be a Brown alum for the rest of your life.

Brown doesn’t end when you graduate.

Welcome to the rest of your Brown experience! We're here to help you launch your next adventure and stay connected with your fellow Brunonians. Here are some ways to keep Brown in your life as you become an alum.

    For Seniors:

    Services you can access before you graduate

    • Use BrownConnect to meet thousands of alumni ready to talk to you about their careers.
    • Join over 17,000 alumni on the Brown Alumni Association’s LinkedIn group.
    • Stay in touch with your Brown community on social media.
    • CareerLAB—the Center for Careers and Life after Brown—has advising, programs, and resources to help students with their career goals.

    For Recent Grads:

    Perks and benefits for alumni

    Career support from CareerLAB and more!

    Brown alumni have access to CareerLAB services for up to three years after graduation. Resources include counseling appointments, guidance on exploring careers in different fields, and guides for creating standout resumes, writing cover letters, and negotiating job offers.

    Career help is also available through these online career tools for Brown alumni. While you can continue to find career contacts in BrownConnect, you can also search the Handshake Job Board, practice your interviewing skills, get tips from free career webinars, and more.

    Tap into the Brown Network

    Start a dialogue with the Brown alumni professional network through the Brown Alumni Association LinkedIn Group or search for alumni by title, keyword, or company on LinkedIn’s Brown University “alumni” tab. If you find an alumnus/a on LinkedIn that you are interested in connecting with, check to see if they’re on BrownConnect, where you can use information such as Networking Topics and Brown Concentrations to tailor your conversation, and use the message function to email them directly.

    NOTE: In order to continue using BrownConnect to contact alumni after graduation, you must turn on your BrownConnect visibility through editing your profile on the Alumni Directory. Under "BrownConnect Networking Preferences," answer "Yes" to student-to-alumni and alumni-to-alumni networking. This will both allow you to continue contacting others and to be contacted yourself.

    Not sure how to begin the networking process? Check out CareerLAB’s handy guide on informational interviewing.

      Find your local community

      Check out virtual Brown events—from book clubs to happy hours, from music to lectures—and connect with the Brown Club in your area. Moving? Make sure you update your alumni profile so you will receive emails about local events.

      Connect around identities and interests

      Explore Brown’s roster of alumni affinity groups, and keep in touch with your class.

      Keep learning long after graduation

      Access free alumni services soon after completing your degree—like Rosetta Stone, the Alumni Directory, and selected library e-journals. Alumni can also apply for lifetime alumni library cards for borrowing within the Brown library system.

      Guidance on continuing your education

      If your post-undergrad life takes you down one of these career paths, check out the resources and fellowship opportunities Brown has made available to you:

      Request your transcripts, either in print or as a digital copy.

      Share your time, treasure, or talent as a way to stay involved

      When you volunteer for Brown you can be a social media ambassador, help run your regional club, your class, or affinity group activities, and more. Find the perfect Brown volunteer role for you.

      Turn on alumni-to-alumni and student-to-alumni networking settings in your alumni profile under “BrownConnect Networking Preferences,” to allow students and fellow alumni to reach out to you around your career and experience—and to be able to reach out to alumni yourself.
