Center for Career & Professional Development

Whether you’re seeking lifelong professional development support or eager to share your expertise and resources with current students and other alumni, we want to engage with you.

Personalized career and graduate school advising, participation in many professional development events, and access to career opportunities through our online job board, HireSU, and our virtual networking platform, PirateConnect, are all accessible resources for SU alumni.

In addition, your desire to #BeSouthwestern and give a helping hand to your fellow Pirates is one of the most important resources Southwestern has to offer. Check out the links to the left about more specific ways you can get involved.
