Alumnae Resume Examples

Destiny
Destiny M. Barletta

This resource provides four alumnae resume samples. Whether you are a recent graduate, a career changer, or a senior executive, your resume is a selection of information that you will use to introduce yourself to people in your field and prospective employers. As you update your resume during your career, think about your most relevant experience, your most recent experience, and what is most important for an employer to know about you. Consider making an appointment with an alumnae career adviser or a career community adviser in your industry to discuss how best to communicate your background and accomplishments on your resume.

Since 2007, Projects for Peace has worked with approximately 115 colleges and universities to support almost 2000 projects.

Each year, the Projects for Peace Alumni Award will award up to $50,000 to support the continuing peacebuilding efforts of past Projects for Peace grantees.

“I use my International Relations and Sociology background to foster conversations with delegates, industry leaders and community members through my first passion—events! Getting to know what excites me led me to creating a brand that I truly love, Black America Summit. We host cross-cultural conversations to unite, educate and inspire Black Americans and allies around potential solutions to phenomena impacting Black America.”

Through the ongoing and generous support of our donors, the College is able to offer funding to support unpaid internships which students identify on their own. Many award recipients pursue internships in nonprofit organizations focused on education and other community development areas, but funding is available for opportunities in other sectors both within the United States and internationally, as well. In addition to the stipends, Wellesley Career Education staff provide ongoing professional development and career education training throughout their summer experiences.
