Career Design for Alumni

The future of work calls for experimentation, lifewide learning and skills for charting a purpose-driven path. Aalto University offers several options to help you design a meaningful and sustainable career at every twist and turn of your journey.
Lifewide Learning

How can you plan your career during this highly volatile and unpredictable time often depicted as the 4th industrial revolution? You can’t – at least not with traditional tools and mindsets. 

As stable jobs and predictable career tracks have disappeared, career choice is no longer a one-time affair. Crafting a sustainable career requires life-wide learning, frequent transitions and adaptable identities.

Career design is a creative approach that help you to adjust and experiment with new directions amidst all the change.

Mentoring helps you to find your path

Aalto University offers a wide range of courses, programs and events to help you create your future and stay up-to-date on the latest discoveries and knowledge.
