Use Flexible Search Filters

Find graduates interested in helping you. Filter by criteria like major, employer, job title, city of residence, school affiliation, and volunteer items. For example, students and recent graduates looking to pursue a career in business outside Indiana could search for and find former Finance grads who live in Chicago and are willing to both discuss their career paths and help in the job hunt.
