Career Connections: Networking and professional development events for U.S. Exchange Alumni

Career Connections brings together U.S. ExchangeAlumni and leaders in business, government, civil society, and other diverse fields to leverage their skills and networks. Programming is offered in two formats: virtual (Career Connections Global+) and in-person (Career Connections) as part of the U.S. Exchange Alumni Exchange Alumni Network and Capacity Building Program, which is implemented in partnership with the Office of Alumni Affairs in the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs at the U.S. Department of State.

Whether U.S. alumni are changing careers, looking to advance, or just starting out, these professional development sessions provide invaluable opportunities to forge new connections, build on their international exchange experiences, and elevate their role as community leaders locally, nationally, and globally.

NOTE: To participate in Career Connections and Career Connections Global+ programming, attendees must be U.S. citizen ExchangeAlumni and registered for an account on the International Exchange Alumni website at www.alumni.state.gov.
