How can I find other University of Illinois alumni for informational interviewing?
The Alumni Directory resource is available to Sustaining and Life Members of the Alumni Association and accessible through the Alumni Directory link in the menu on the right.
While we would like to provide a guarantee, what we can assure you is that those who use our services receive resume referrals and resources to assist in their job searches. Many also get interviews, and there are many who find positions from the referrals we provide. Alumni also use our services proactively for each new job search, and we believe this "repeat" business affirms the quality of our services. The professional development workshops provide take-home skills to educate and enhance your job search process and your professional development. Employers assume all alumni looking for employment would utilize this service, and many companies placing job postings with the Alumni Career Center are specifically seeking University of Illinois graduates.
You can visit the Alumni Career Center Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and by appointment only on Wednesday evenings, 5 to 7:30 p.m.
