Services for Alumni
At Earlham, we view a career as not just a job, but a journey; as such, our office is committed to helping Earlhamites pursue their goals and aspirations even after graduation. Alumni services include, but are not limited to:
- reviews of resumes, cover letters, graduate/professional school applications, and other career-related documents
- career advising appointments
- access to resources, including Symplicity
- networking connections through the Earlham Career Network (ECNet)
Use the tabs on this page to explore the Career Education Office's services and resources for alumni.
The Career Education Office is your resource for career guidance. If you are interested in communicating with a Career Adviser, whether in-person or via phone, Skype, or email, please contact our office.
What is Earlham Career Network (ECNet)?
ECNet, or Earlham Career Network, is a database of Earlham alumni who are interested in serving as mentors and career connections to students and fellow alums.
Many alumni make use of the contacts contained in ECNet for personal and professional development. Some alumni decide that they have information and insight to share with students and other alums and become ECNet mentors themselves.
Connect with ECNet
To connect with fellow alumni for career guidance or networking, contact the Career Education Office. Our staff can search ECNet for keywords relating to location, major, graduation date, and/or job title and provide you with the information needed to connect.
Be a Career Mentor
If you would like to volunteer as an Alumni Career Mentor yourself, please fill out this form. You might also consider attending the Alumni Connections Social during Homecoming. The Alumni Connections Social serves as a networking opportunity for juniors and seniors to meet alumni in their fields of interest.
A Dozen Hungry Quakers
Alumni looking to mentor students should also consider participating in our Dozen Hungry Quakers program. This program matches nine students with three alumni for dinner and conversation. These dinners currently take place mostly in Indianapolis, but no matter where you're located, please contact Mark Gaines if you're interested in connecting with students through this program.
Alumni as Employers
Many of our alumni are influencing the world in meaningful ways and find themselves with positions to fill. We welcome the submission of any information you might have about job, internship, or volunteer opportunities. To post opportunities for Earlham students, contact our office or create an Employer account in Symplicity, our office's online job posting and application system. Symplicity allows members of our community to create a profile, search and apply for jobs, and connect with employers of interest.
If you have questions about Symplicity or would like to talk to someone about other ways to recruit Earlham students as interns, volunteers, or employees, please contact the Center for Integrated Learning.
Our Resource Toolbox is a collection of online resources for career planning, applying to graduate school, and finding jobs/internships.
TheHeart is the online hub for Earlham students, faculty, and staff. Alumni can request an account here. Once logged in, click on the Alumni tab to find information and resources from the Career Education Office.
