Job Seeking Alumni

ECRC resources are geared toward current students and recent grads at all degree levels, however, many of our recommended strategies and tools are applicable to a general job search. Researching potential careers, industries and employers and actively engaging in a wide variety of networking activities (in-person and virtual), remain the most effective means of landing a new job.

Alumni may access the following resources:

  • Unlimited access to job postings and company profiles in Engineering Careers, by Symplicity (ECRC job postings typically target current students and new grads).
  • Access to additional job search links which are maintained on the ECRC website here. Note, while many of the recommended resources are public websites, some may only be available to current students.
  • Participation in on-campus recruiting is available for up to one academic year post graduation.
  • Career advising appointments are available on a limited basis. Appointments are granted at the discretion of the ECRC.

College of Engineering alumni are encouraged to explore career resources available through the Alumni Association of the University of Michigan’s career website. Resources include opportunities to connect with fellow alumni via the Alumni Directory and LinkedIn alumni groups, search the alumni job board, participate in career events (virtual and in-person across geographic locales) and access the Alumni Association’s career coach referral system.
