Become a Career Helper

Ideal for: Alumni interested in having career conversations with students and other alumni

When it comes to figuring out how to apply a Macalester education in the job market, alumni are the experts. Career Helpers are alumni who have raised their hand to serve as a resource for students and fellow alumni who want to learn more about specific fields, career paths, employers and industries. Activating the Career Helper badge on MacDirect sends a clear signal that you are available for these conversations, as well as flagging you as a potential volunteer for your major and minor department(s). Career Helpers are not expected to offer jobs or internships, but rather serve as resources and a support system for alumni and students of all ages.

As of January 2015, 504 alumni have signed up to be Career Helpers–please help us build our network!
