We greatly appreciate the alumni and families who provide assistance and support to students through the Career Development Office at Pomona. You are some of our biggest advocates and we would love to help you get involved with us. Here are some ways you can assist:

LinkedIn Group Connections

Your advice can make a significant impact on students and other alumni.  If you would like to offer your career related thoughts, experiences and opinions to help others, consider making yourself available as an Alumni or Parent Career Advisor in our LinkedIn Groups. Search for Pomona College LinkedIn groups including Pomona College Alumni, Pomona College Career Connections, and Pomona College Career Advisors.

Conversations and connections through these groups have provided students with vital information about career preparation, jobs, internships and more. Your participation in our LinkedIn group does not obligate you to find opportunities for students; it merely says that you are willing to be a friendly voice in the otherwise anonymous, often intimidating world of work and job search.

Recruit an Intern or Full-Time Hire

Pomona Alumni and Families can help contribute to students, graduating seniors, and alumni by offering opportunities with their employer or organization.  Students and alumni alike appreciate seeing when an opportunity has been referred to the CDO by a fellow Sagehen – these positions are often flagged as Sagehen to Sagehen opportunities.

Internships with a Pomona alumnus/a or family member as the student's supervisor are particularly helpful to students.  You understand their school experience and can help target their learning activities.  Most students are available to work as summer interns between late May and late August.  However, if your organization is located in the Los Angeles area, you may qualify for the Pomona College Internship Program (PCIP) which occurs during the academic year. Learn more about this program and the benefits of hosting an intern or contact the Assistant Director of Experiential Learning & Career Advising at pcip@pomona.edu or call 909-621-8144.

Alumni and Families regularly post internship and full-time positions for graduating seniors and fellow alumni in Handshake, our online recruiting system. There is no cost to post. Learn more about posting jobs on our Recruiter Login  page.
