Our mission is to empower people to clarify their values as they discover and develop their skills, abilities and passions for life.
Reconnecting with Coe
Though you may not realize it, you carry great wisdom with you.
Current students at Coe benefit greatly from conversations they have with alumni. When grads talk about their career paths, life stories and hints on how to survive in the "real world," students really listen. They are inspired that "someone like them" made it.
You can help Coe students survive the transition to life after Coe just by providing your current employment/grad school information, address, phone number and email. As a part of the Coe College Alumni Career Network, your name will be made available to students interested in contacting you for information about your current occupation, the organization you work for, places you studied after Coe or just to learn tips about making the transition after Coe. Students are coached on professionalism in networking and how to gather information -- not to ask for employment. They are encouraged to be thankful of the time you graciously provide. You have much to offer them from your experience.
For more information contact the Director of Career Services.
Offering an Internship or Job
Perhaps the organization you work for would like to become part of our recruiting program and interview selected students for full-time openings each year. Perhaps you are interested in sponsoring an intern at your workplace. Or you may just want to post a position (summer, part-time or full-time) when one comes open at your organization. If we may meet another need, please do not hesitate to contact us:
