Through our networking nights, career panels, mentor luncheons, Zoom sessions, alumni mentor program, and Linkedin page, Brooklyn College students have been exposed to myriad successful alumni every year.

In the past, students have connected with professionals who work for well-known organizations such as CBS News, ESPN, Facebook, FEGS, Goldman Sachs, Google, Harper Collins, KPMG, the New York Knicks, the New York City Department of Education, PwC, SUNY Downstate, the United Nations, and the U.S. Department of State.

More than 100 established alumni participate in our annual mass networking events or have mentored students, sharing:

  • Exclusive “insider” information about specific career fields, industries, or companies, including work environment, required skills, and steps to take to succeed
  • Advice on self presentation to further appeal to potential employers
  • Tips on proper etiquette when meeting with professionals in a formal business setting
  • Résumé improvement and interview preparation assistance to stand out as an ideal candidate for a job within a particular industry and/or field

If any alumni are interested in mentoring or participating in a mentoring event, contact the Magner Career Center via e-mail or call 718.951.5696.
