We encourage alumni to stay connected to the Sarah Lawrence College community. The Office of Career Services offers a variety of ways for alumni to continue their involvement by sharing internship and job opportunities, providing career advice and participating in programs and networking events.

Get Involved

Share a Job for Seasoned Alumni

If you have a job opening suitable for more seasoned alumni, please log-in or create an account on SLC Connect. If you have questions about this process, please contact Miriam Zarin, Manager of Alumni Networking and Affinity Programs at 914.813.9214 or mzarin@sarahlawrence.edu.

Share an Internship or Entry Level Job

Career Services uses Handshake, an online database, to share internships and entry-level jobs with students and recent graduates. It is free to create an account and post opportunities.

Step 1: Clink on this link to create your user account: Handshake

Step 2:  Connect to your company profile if they are already on Handshake. Your company profile should pull up based on the domain of your email address if it is already in Handshake. If it isn’t, you will see the option to create a new company profile.

Step 3: Request to connect with schools. Make sure you check Sarah Lawrence College.  You will then receive an email from us “approving” you to post with us. 

Step 4:  You will now be able to post internships and jobs. 

If you have difficulty with any of these steps, click on the links below, or contact Jim MacWhorter at jmacwhorter@sarahlawrence.edu.
