How Arcadia Can Support You

Arcadia alumni may meet with a Career Educator in person or virtually to discuss changes in your career and your career development needs. Specifically, we support alumni in developing effective job search strategies, networking, interviewing, and/or crafting application materials (resumes, cover letters, grad school personal statements).  We offer up alumni to (4) complimentary meetings with a Career Educator.

Supporting Students

Share Your Insights

  • Some of the most influential experiences for our Arcadia students and alumni are when they have the opportunity to connect and engage with one another. The Take a Knight to Work program allows current students to virtually connect and visit with alumni to explore their aspirational career paths without the pressure of a grade or full-time internship commitment. Experiences vary from conversations over coffee or lunch to even a full- or half-day experience at a workplace. Contact Andrea Reeds in the Office of Alumni Engagement (reedsa@arcadia.edu) to Join Take a Knight to Work and make a difference to students today!
