Resources and Opportunities for Alumni


Welcome Reed alumni! Thank you for visiting the Center for Life Beyond Reed site.

How you can help…

Hire a Reedie! Help Reed students and recent graduates connect with jobs and paid internships. Post opportunities right here.

Ignite the Imagination of Reedies and Inspire Career Exploration! Join the Reed Career Network!

The Reed Career Network is a group of alumni and parents who provide valuable information, advice, and referrals to Reedies as they pursue career goals, graduate school, or professional school. Joining the career network is the single most important way alumni can get connected with students who need their support. Here's how to join:

Visit Information Update and fill in new fields about your career and/or postgraduate studies. In particular, please take a few minutes to visit the Profile, Electronic, Employer, and Degrees tabs to provide expanded information about your career and contact information. We also recommend that you set your Privacy Setting to show your employer and contact information, so that students are able to connect with you. Here are detailed steps to help you complete your profile, which may take about 15 minutes of your time.

Services for you

If you are here to seek resources and information to further your own career objectives, we are glad to provide qualified levels of assistance. 

The best resource we can offer are other Reedies, of course. Connect with alumni through the Reed Career Network, or through social networking platforms, especially Reed Switchboard.

For Alumni one to five years out from graduation, we provide all the same career/graduate school search services as we do for our current students, including online subscriptions and databases. Visit the Student Page to learn more.

For Alumni five years or more out from graduation, we invite you to use the Beyond Reed web site, which contains information on both job and graduate school search. We also offer one consultation with a career counselor.

Alumni & Parent Relations offers other opportunities to volunteer and many activities. Please visit their page to learn more about upcoming alumni events.
