The Center for Life Beyond Reed

Faculty & Staff

As you advise and counsel students and alumni, use our online resources to research graduate school information, fellowships, career areas, and more.

We encourage you to investigate the services and support we offer to students and to refer your advisees to us the first time you meet with them (and often thereafter). Let your advisees know about our offerings:

  • Individual career advising
  • Access to Griffin Door, our job and internship database
  • Job and internship search strategies (for part-time, full-time, and on-campus employment)
  • Document review (resume, cover letter, personal statement, CV, LinkedIn profile)
  • Mock interviews
  • Career panels and events applicable to all majors
  • Weekly email newsletter with curated opportunities
  • Quiet room for phone and Skype interviews

Write a Letter of Recommendation

Faculty and staff members are frequently asked to be references and write letters of recommendation for students. Contact Michelle Johnson, the fellowships adviser, with any questions about writing a letter of recommendation, and check out our resources for professional references.

Share Student Success

We find that we are most successful in helping students with academic and career planning when we follow the successes of our Reed graduates. Share the post-graduate success stories of your former students so that we can keep track of where our young alumni thrive after graduation. Email our office or call us at 503/788-6690.
