You’re graduating, now what? Just because you’re leaving the nest doesn’t mean Temple isn’t still going to have your back! Whether you’re looking for career-launching opportunities, ways to network with fellow Owls, or just want to stay in shape, you’ll find everything you need, thanks to Temple’s abundant alumni resources.

Career services after graduation
You may have used Temple’s plethora of career resources for current students, but did you know these resources are still available to you even after graduation? Through the career center, recent grads can explore their options, connect with opportunities and even develop personal brands!

Handshake, Temple’s job and internship portal, remains available for graduates, and employers looking for recent graduates will post opportunities.

Connecting with other alumni
With thousands of students joining the ranks of our alumni every year, opportunities abound in Temple’s alumni network, and Temple has made it easy for us all to stay connected with one another. The Temple University Alumni Association hosts career fairs where you can network with other alumni.

Owl Network is Temple’s professional network, where you can connect with other alumni and current students to create professional connections! Find and connect with other Owls in your field, find job opportunities, and even seek career tips and advice!

Career coaching
While career services are available to current students, coaching services remain available five years after graduation. Make an appointment with a career coach who can help you identify your goals and help you create a realistic plan to achieve them!

There are so many potential paths you may take after graduation, and Temple is here to continue helping you on your journey. Whether you’re looking for your first job, deciding on a career shift or even applying to grad school, Temple is here to help you develop a plan for your next steps!
