Alumnae Career Advancement

One of the benefits of being a Wellesley alumna is continued access to the College’s career education resources. The new approach to career education includes dedicated advisors, industry experts, and a community-focused model available to help you navigate your career journey, make meaningful connections, overcome obstacles, and celebrate success at every stage.

We welcome you to reach out to us whenever you are in need of guidance, advice, or encouragement as you navigate your career journey.  We offer one-on-one advising, resume and cover letter reviews, interview practice, and advice on new trends that will impact your job search process. Our experienced staff can work with you to address whatever you are facing, including:

  • Making a career pivot/change
  • Advancing in your current career field
  • Re-entering the workforce after time away
  • Finding an “encore career” after retirement
