Career and Professional Development

Welcome Alumni

W&L’s Career and Professional Development Office allows alumni to explore the career resources available through the university’s expansive network, including job listings maintained by and, in some cases, exclusively for W&L students and alumni. Alumni can connect with classmates using Colonnade Connections and the official W&L Alumni LinkedIn Group and even learn how to recruit students and alumni using Handshake, an online recruiting platform.
