Career Advocates

Put the power of the Centre Alumni network to work.

Former students helping current students succeed is the heart of the Centre Experience.

Career Advocates are alumni actively committed to helping launch careers. Networking is one of the most effective ways to make job hunters stand out in the marketplace.

Centre Career Advocates:

  • Provide inside advice on how to prepare and succeed in their specific field
  • Share first-hand tips on interviewing or preparing grad-school applications
  • And much more!

Connect with a Career Advocate

If you’d like to connect with the Career Advocates, make an appointment with your Career Coach in the CCPD. You don't have contact just one Advocate. Explore different fields. Your Career Coach will provide contact info and walk you through how to connect with them.

Making connections through the career advocate program can help open doors to opportunities that you may not have known existed. These type of connections have made a huge impact for me personally throughout my career. As a career advocate for Centre, I really enjoy helping students as they begin the journey to finding a career pathway that aligns with their interests, talents and passion.

I always enjoy the opportunity to lend a hand to a fellow Centre Colonel. I know that I'm going to be connecting someone from my network with a bright, articulate, and thoughtful person. Centre continues to equip students with the same gifts that have stood me in good stead throughout my career. There's just no substitute for strong critical thinking skills grounded in a world view that encourages optimism and service to others.
