Get Involved

Colgate students benefit from the tremendous support of our alumni and parents. Whether you assist students with preliminary career exploration, provide strategy on searches, or hire a student, we appreciate your volunteerism!

Students and alumni connect through pannel discussions.

Partner with Career Services

iCAN, The Alumni Career Advisory Network: Can students and other alumni contact you about your career path, current position, or for general career advice? Update your profile on iCAN. Please include your “description of professional experience” and LinkedIn profile. Alumni volunteers only, please.

On-campus mock interviews:
Are you visiting campus during a weekday and willing to provide practice interviews? Tell us at least seven business days in advance and we’ll do our best to pair you up with a student interviewee.

Internships and jobs: Help open the door to the first step or continuation in someone’s career! Contact us to post a job or internship, learn about on-campus recruiting, or our off-campus interviewing events.

“A Day in the Life” job shadowing: Host a student at work for a day over January break. This is an exploration program designed to provide our younger students a realistic picture of professional life.  Sign up to serve as a host.

Financial support of Career Services: Our impact is amplified by the generous support of our donors. Designate your online giving to Career Services, or speak with our Institutional Advancement colleagues about your gift. If you would like to learn about our current needs, or are a new donor who’d like to discuss your giving, please contact Jen Stone at 315-228-6928. 

Please e-mail careervolunteer@colgate.edu if your idea is not reflected above.

While we seek to use volunteers’ time appropriately, we cannot guarantee student participation.

Alumni Career Advisor Network

In response to your needs, the Office of Alumni Relations and the Center for Career Services developed a convenient, searchable professional directory using the same database that drives our popular alumni directory.

This network, also known as iCAN, makes it easy to find fellow grads by industry, location, and more. Alumni and current students both can use this tool to develop their professional networks.
