Alumni

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.
