Career Services and the Alumni Office work hand-in-hand when it comes to assisting both current students and alumni in career preparation and opportunities. Just because you have graduated, regardless of how long you have been gone, our services and resources will always be available to you. We are never more than a phone call, email or personal visit away.
For more information, you can contact Career Services at 701.355.8050 or [email protected] or the Alumni Office (see ‘Alumni & Friends’ for contact info).
Become a Professional Mentor
The world is more connected than ever before, and we know how frequently doors are opened through networks. By becoming a professional mentor, you can help open that door for others. Professional mentoring provides benefits for everyone involved and is a great way to give back in ways that anyone can afford. You have the freedom to choose how active you want to be. Participating involves as little as offering advice, speaking to a class, critiquing a resume, job shadowing or introducing employment and professional connections.
Find a Job
The University of Mary belongs to a consortium of career service offices around the state connected by the common website - http://teamnd.org/. Employers ranging in location from the Bismarck-Mandan area as well as across the state and nation use this site to conveniently post job opportunities to most colleges and universities, and as an alum, you have access to these postings. In addition to finding job opportunities, you can also view an employer directory and learn about career events.

Connect with Other Professionals and Alum
Though we work to provide events and other networking opportunities for our alum to connect in person, websites have made connecting with others across the world quick and easy. If you are looking for a way to increase your professional networking contacts, LinkedIn can provide you with that chance. You can create a profile at http://www.linkedin.com to connect with employers and professional organizations or with alum by joining the University of Mary Alumni group.
