For Alumni

Our Services

Macalester alumni who have graduated within five years are offered comprehensive services, including appointments with career counselors, resume reviews, job search assistance, and unlimited access to Handshake, our career services platform. Alumni 5+ years from graduation are offered three appointments and unlimited access to Handshake.

If you graduated prior to 2018, you’ll need to request a Handshake account. Questions? See Getting Started with Handshake Guide for Alumni.

Volunteer to Help

Your help is invaluable to students. You can participate by:

  • Volunteering to be a career helper on MacConnect, the online alumni directory. We encourage students to seek out alums who have designated themselves as career helpers.
  • Posting your organization’s open jobs and internships on Handshake. If you wish, you can choose to make the postings visible to Mac students only.

  • #HireMac: We can post positions on Handshake with a #HireMac label. This label allows students to know there is an alumni connection. With your permission, we list your name and email address in the job description so students can reach out to ask questions about the application, company culture, etc. If you want to share an opportunity to be posted as a #HireMac position, please fill out our #HireMac form.
