Seeking Career Advice

Did you know that alumni can meet with a Career Counselor after graduation for free? Get help crafting the perfect resume and cover letter or preparing for an interview.  We can also offer guidance for approaching your job search and developing your professional network. Schedule an appointment by calling 253.535.7459 and if you don’t live locally, request to meet via Skype or phone.

Regardless of when you graduated, we welcome all alumni to participate in events to help further your career or job search. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or Pinterest to stay in on top of the latest articles, networking events, speakers and career fairs. All alumni can login to the Career Connections Opportunities Board to view jobs, internships and volunteer postings. In the fall, you can also use the Career Connections Opportunities Board to access Lute Link, PLU’s new career advisor network. Connect with Lute Link career advisors to seek advice from allies and advocates, eager to help you develop as a professional.
