Alumni 101 Workshop Series

Alumni 101

In partnership with the UC San Diego Alumni Association, the Psychology Department is proud to present the Alumni 101 Workshop Series, which gives students the opportunity to learn from alumni about career-related topics such as interviewing, networking, failure in the workplace, and more. 

“Alumni 101: Classes to Career” workshops for psychology students are an opportunity to hear from and talk with UC San Diego alumni and career experts about topics that address life after classes. Alumni share their career experiences with insights about “I wish I knew then what I know now” on a variety of topics including networking, interviewing, internships, career path options, overcoming obstacles, and more.

All Alumni 101 workshops will count toward a CCR Certification in Career Development in Psychology.
