Thinking about a new job? Groton's Alumni Office and the GrotonConnect site can help you establish professional contacts, whether you are moving, looking for a new opportunity, or exploring an entirely new field.
The Alumni Office maintains a registry of alumni and parents, organized by region and field, who have volunteered to provide informational meetings and referrals. It can be a significant asset if you’re developing the chain of contacts essential to a successful job search. To receive a customized list of career advisors in your field or region, please contact Allison MacBride at 978-448-7588, or go to GrotonConnect and filter by your desired field.
The Alumni Career Advisory Program is not a job placement service, so please expect nothing more than good advice. It can provide an effective way to research occupations, prepare for interviews, uncover job markets, or become familiar with a new area. When contacting advisors, be prepared to ask relevant questions, share your resume, and explain your interests and skills. Remember to follow up with a thank you note and inform the advisor of your progress.
If you are a graduate or parent willing to share your time and experience, please contact the Alumni Office at 800-396-6866. You may determine how often you field Groton requests. Career Advisory volunteers contribute to both Groton's legacy of service and the professional development of a Grotonian in transition.
