Alumni Services

Career Development Services for Alumni

MGA Graduates who need career development assistance may schedule virtual and in-person appointments with a career advisor in the Career Center portion of Handshake.  Career Advisors can discuss career transitions, graduate programs, job search tips, salary negotiations, resume and cover letter reviews, social media branding, and other career-related topics.

We also work with alumni who want to hire MGA students and alumni for jobs and internships.  To get started as an MGA employer, you can create an employer account on Handshake or email our office.  


MGA alumni can use Handshake to access all job postings available from MGA employers.
