Career development occurs consistently throughout a lifetime, not just during the college years. Career Connections recognizes that alumni will encounter many opportunities, obstacles and barriers in their career paths and that they may need some assistance evaluating these options and making career-related decisions. Alumni of Texas Woman’s University have free access to Career Connections Center services and resources for life. 

  • First, a TWU alumni email account is needed to access our resources. Click here to get started.
  • With an alumni email address, create an account on TWU Connect/Handshake. TWU Connect (or Handshake) is TWU’s platform for job postings, events, and making appointments with Career Connections staff.  It may take a day or two for the account to be approved, so please contact our office at 940-898-2950 if immediate access is needed.
  • One-on-one career coaching appointments are available with our Career Consultants. We offer these appointments in person, on the phone, or via video chat. If the Dallas or Houston campuses are more convenient, our Consultants on those campuses are there to help!
  • Our career fairs, webinars and all events are open to alumni. Please check our calendar of events for any upcoming Career Connections events. 

Please connect with our Alumni office and to connect and engage with other TWU Alum!
