Alumni & Families
Alumni and parents form the most valuable network available to current Reedies and recent graduates. Will you join us?
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 and 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.
Parents: Contact Brooke Hunter (503/788-6698) to get connected to the Reed Career Network.
Join the Reed Career Alliance
The Reed Alumni Association-sponsored initiative to support Reed College students and alumni in the development of meaningful careers post-Reed. Learn about Reed's career communities, and ways that you can get engaged.
Alumni: If you're interested in supporting career development activities, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and put “Reed Career Network” in the subject.
Hire a Reedie
Use Handshake—our database for jobs, internships, and volunteer opportunities—to connect directly with students. Create a profile, then post a job or internship opportunity for Reed students.
Offer a Job Shadow
A job shadow (or externship) is an opportunity for you to welcome a Reedie into your workspace for a short period of time so that they can gain valuable insights into a job or career of interest.
Find Career Support
