Alumni Interest Survey

Share your career experience and expertise by mentoring and supporting Coe students!

The college is developing a dynamic new Center for Creativity and Careers as part of its Strategic Plan. One of the many priorities of this new approach is to more systematically connect our alumni to current students to help them prepare for success in careers and/or graduate school - life beyond Coe. Are you ready to help Make It Happen? If so, please fill out this short Alumni Interest Survey (it will only take two minutes). We have some immediate needs but are also working to build a database for future needs and events.


Coe Connections

The system allows students to upload resumes/cover letters, search and apply for internships/jobs and learn about each organization in the system. Employers can post jobs and internships, search student resumes. Students and employers will also be able to register for a Coe College Career Events (such as workshops, mock interview days, employer panels etc.)
