Alumni & Parents

Alumni and parents form the most valuable network available to current Reedies and recent graduates.

Can you or your employer offer an internship or externship? Are you interested in serving as a career resource for current students? Can you help students with networking? We make it easy for you to share your talents with students and graduates.

Be an Adviser: 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. Alumni can log on via IRIS with their Kerberos credentials to get started. Learn more about how to update your profile from Greg Byshenk '89.

Parents: Contact Brooke Hunter (503/ 788-6698) to get connected to the Reed Career Network.

Be an Employer: Hire a Reedie

  • Post a Job or InternshipUse Symplicity—our database for jobs, internships, and volunteer opportunities—to connect directly with students. Create a profile, then post a job. (Alumni: you can also search posted opportunities by logging on through IRIS.)
  • Participate in Reed Internship Advantage: This program connects top employers with talented candidates for paid, substantive internships that support professional development and add value to your workplace. Your organization can recruit ambitious, intelligent Reed students with an unrivaled work ethic.
